I've never bed fished. I've seen others do it, but I'm not into it. 

 

I did once catch a male that clearly had spawned and was probably guarding fry or just left them.  Poor guy was exhausted and almost didn't make it. Shakey head fishing from shore.

A not trying to be a smart aleck, but how did you tell he was exhausted? 

 

Was he breathing hard or something? Hooked him and he didn't fight? 

Just curious

If there's a shallow water smallie that won't eat a ned rig, I haven't met him or her.

Spawning or not.

Prop-baits a lot of the time, because they are very threatening to a bass guarding its progeny.

And what Bass Fisherman doesn't like Fishing topwater?? 

 

Really liking Rapalas X-prop, great improvement over the tried and true devil's horse I've thrown for years!

gotta love the heddon prop baits(various sizes) but those others catch em just the same, and i honestly have never met a bass fisherman that hated topwater.

If it is too dark or windy for sight fishing, most topwaters will draw a defensive strike from males and a subtle slurp from females.  Even if you miss them, they have given away their position.

 

For sight fishing, Ned rig, lizard (T-Rig) & Senko (weightless wacky) in that order.  A 1/16th oz TRD won't spook the fish if you accidently cast on the nest instead of past it, and it's buoyancy makes it look like it is rummaging thru the nest.

I hooked him about 40 ft out from the shoreline. He didn't really give much of a fight at all. I unhooked him and took 2 quick photos before I released him. When I put him back in the water he just sat there with his mouth open and rolled over. I lipped him and move him around for a little bit and released him again and he closed his mouth and swam a couple of inches and rolled over again. This time I just grabbed him by the tail and pushed him around for a minute or two before he decided to quickly swim away.

 

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, hopefully none of his buddies or potential mates see it.

All of the regular "creature" baits weighted but the most fun is a Yamamoto DShad in pink.  I can see it, I can let it flutter down to the bed and if the wind is not blowing, I can work it right where I want it.  If it's windy, a weighted 3 or 4 inch Senko is next in line.  Finally, a Yamamoto Twin Tailed Hula Grub is deadly on a 1/4 oz football head jig for deeper beds or dragging.

Lets hear what your favorite bed baits or bed fishing techniques are!

Isn't the bass spawn complete before the bass fishing season opens in Minnesota?
