In Missouri Current Bass Behaviour

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so from experiences fishing lately, I would have to describe the bass as being in pre-spawn mode. Catching them mostly in areas close to (what I suspect) spawning beds. Are you guys experiencing the same thing?

I wonder if the heavy rains as of lately have anything to do with that. Is the water temp still pretty cold?

I have been catching them around deep structure, or shallow in the weeds.  The bass are being very picky in what they are hitting.  I have only had luck casting small swimbaits, and Mann's 1 minus crankbaits.  I'm not sure if it's the weather or what.

Had some luck on the ned rig recently on the conservation lakes. Seemed like they were still pretty scattered out

The bass are really shallow in my home lake, in the weeds or spawning.  I've been mostly either topwater fishing or bed fishing.

Hit Paho last Tuesday.  Sunup water temp was 60.  By the time we left, (sundown) the water had risen by as much as 10! degrees in some places.  The bass were moving into the shallows all day.  Definitely pre-spawn.  It's cooled off a bit and I haven't been back out.  I imagine this cold front has made the bite pretty tough.

Got skunked today, first time in a very long time. Water was pretty clear but the wind was crazy. Couldn't buy a bite, and I threw the whole bag at them. I also didn't see any bait fish activity near the banks. Pretty frustrated after today hopefully this weekend is better.
