Early Spring Tips?

Recommended Posts

I am going to be fishing small ponds and lakes soon. Weather is around 45* and sunny. not sure what the water temps are but its probably lower by a few degrees. What lures work best? any other advice is appreciated!

This time of year, warmer days & some sun can really help.   Perhaps try to fish places that have the sun shining on them, are somewhat sheltered from the wind, & are perhaps close to deep(er) water.   Then, throw baits that you are confident in and Fish SHALLOW.  The bass will come to you.  They are coming shallow to warm up & Eat.  Fish holding out deeper may not be looking to eat.  If there's bait around - even better.  Be patient.   A jerkbait fished with a slow stroke & a decent pause can be deadly in this situation.

The nice part of this time of the year is that you don’t need a lot of poles on deck.

Fish the warmest part of the day.

As mentioned, jerkbaits with long pauses and small twitches; not the big rips you see them use on MLF.

Like this ^. I like the drag and dangle" with a husky jerk or rouge in really cold weather. Do mix in a couple of "wind shield wipers" here and there though..
