Post Spawn vs. Summer

Recommended Posts

Guest basskid17

Is there a difference between post spawn and summer?? I am talking about the way you go about patterning fish and what types of bait to use.... I do realize that there is a difference between late july and august vs post spawn, but is there a connection in patterns and baits between post spawn and early summer??

Post spawn bass are in transition from. They will be moving from their spawning grounds to the deep usually when the water temp is between 75-80. Migration routes between shallow and deep and some creek channels or main lake points are good to fish during this time. When the bass stop moving some will be deep on humps or other deep structure, while some will remain shallow in the deep cover like wood or slop or shallow weed lines. C-riggs and deep crankbaits are a good choice for the deep fish. Also a texas rigged worm or a grub will get you a few bites.

For the shallow fish use frogs over the slop, cranks and spinnerbaits around the wood. Lipless crankbaits can also be a good choice early in the morning and late in the eveing on the flats.

I think bass are more inclined to move to deeper weeds in the summer.

The way I see it, it depends on where you live also. Some places bass are already on the summer pattern before summer arivves on the calender. It is going to be more based on the actual water temp as to how long it will take for bass to  move from their post-spawn areas to there summer haunts. Some places the bass will move slowly back to their summer homes, and in others it will only be a few days to a week after they have recooped from the rigors of spawning.

Deff depends on where you live....plus : structure,temp,weather,oxygen level,ect...but bass do tend to move deeper and get more aggresive during and after post spawn.
