Transcript of Spring Bass Fishing

  • 1. Spring Bass Fishing Spring is spawning time for largemouth bass, and it's also one of the best times for bass fishing. As water temperatures approach 60 degrees Fahrenheit, bass get ready to reproduce. They start feeding vigorously, building themselves up for the task ahead. This is a good time to fish with lures that imitate small baitfish, the favorite food of mature largemouth bass. Casting the lure around weeds and structure where the bass would be stalking smaller fish gives good results. Lures should be returned with an action that mimics an injured fish. Baits that rattle and flash are great attention- getters and often trigger quick strikes. When the fish are ready to spawn, they construct nests in shallow areas, preferring sandy or gravelly bottoms, which the males prepare by sweeping the bottom with their tails. The females lay their eggs, then retire to deeper water to recover. Males fertilize the eggs, then stay to guard the nest and the young fish which will hatch soon. Males will strike lures that move through the nesting area, both from hunger and to protect the bed.

2. W a t e r T e m p e r a t u r e s f o r B e s t Fishing Depending upon climate, weather patterns, and water depth, the temperatures at any fishing location will vary. Although the Ohio Division of Wildlife advises that largemouth bass spawn from mid-April to mid-June, in warmer climates the spawn may occur earlier. They are most active in waters ranging from 77 to 86 degrees Fahrenheit, and their activity decreases quickly when water warms beyond this range. This makes spring the best time for largemouth anglers to hit the water. 3. F i s h i n S p r i n g f o r R e c o r d B a s s A c c o rding to the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, the record for largemouth bass http://www.michigan.gov/dnr/0,1607,7-153-10364---,00.html in the state is 15 lbs., 14 oz., from a farm pond in Union County, March 29, 1991. The world record is a 22 lbs., 4 oz. pre-spawn female caught by George Perry on June 2, 1932 in Telfair County, Georgia. Perry, a twenty-year-old farmer, kept from his fields by rainy weather, decided to try for a fish dinner instead. He caught the record fish on a Creek Chub Fintail Shiner lure. Bassmaster Classic Tournament in February Although many parts of the United States are still in winter's frozen grip in February, Louisiana enjoys a southern climate that warms up early.
