Top 5 Baits For Early Spring Bass Fishing



These are our Top 5 lures choices for Spring Bass Fishing. From the first signs of Spring all the way up to the spawn, these baits will produce. Whether you’re fishing a pond or a giant reservoir, using these baits to locate active fish is a very effective way to catch bigger bass this Spring.

One of the biggest mistakes we see anglers make is to fish too slowly during the Spring. This is the time when big bass are up and active more than any other time of year. Using these baits to effectively cover water quickly will put you in front of more big bass each day. Move quickly but fish effectively and you’re going to find the success you’re looking for!

10 lb. Bass on a Chatterbait. Spring Bass Fishing.

Lure: Z-Man Chatterbait http://bit.ly/ZMan_Chatterbait
Trailer: 4" Keitech http://bit.ly/Swing_Impact
Rod: 7' St. Croix Avid Medium
Reel: Lews Team Pro http://bit.ly/Lews_Team_Pro
Line: Stren 17 lb. mono http://bit.ly/Stren
Trailer Hook: 1/0 Gamakatsu http://bit.ly/Trailer_Hook

The chatterbait is one of my favorite lures to use during the spawning periods of the Spring. You can fish it in grass, cover lots of water, and it creates vibrations that lure in those big female bass. I will break down the chatterbait vs. spinnerbait and what types of trailers to use in my next video.

Godzilla Bass Caught on a Shrimp! Topwater Bass Fishing

Lure: Topwater Shrimp http://bit.ly/Savage_Shrimp
Rod: 7' St. Croix Avid Medium Heavy
Reel: Lews Magnesium http://bit.ly/Lews_Magnesium
Line: 17 lb. Stren Mono http://bit.ly/Stren

It might sound crazy to go bass fishing with shrimp, but in this video you can see that everything, including bass, like to eat shrimp. After all, they are not that much different looking than a primary source of food for bass, the crawfish. This topwater shrimp made by Savage Gear is an excellent bait because you can fish it as a topwater bait, and also flip and pitch it like a jig. On this nice Spring day in Alabama, it was an all you can eat shrimp buffet for the bass.

Jerkbait Bass Fishing in Cold Water [Video]



Mark Zona shares his unique approach to jerkbait fishing bass in cold water – it’s a potential Bassmaster Classic-winning method when the event is held during a cold period. According to Z-Train, it isn’t about the jerk. Rather, you need to get the bait to depth and pull. This requires a long cast and a deep diving jerkbait (http://goo.gl/Nu3UOR) that comfortably hits that 10-foot range.

When to Choose Flat Side vs. Round Cranks



Elite Series pro Bill Lowen might be one of the best shallow water crankbait fishermen in professional bass fishing. He has thrown every homemade crankbait on the market and nearly every mass produced crankbait as well. He has searched high and low for the best behaving actions in various water conditions.

In this short video, he shares some of his insight on flat sided crankbaits and when to use them in bass fishing in contrast to round-bodied square-billed crankbaits. Learn what makes him choose one over the other. He talks about water temperatures and how you should fish each in the alternate situations. Also what he likes for fishing these various crankbaits.

Lowen shows off his PH Lures flat sides like the Skinny P (http://goo.gl/ZiUoSm) as well as the Ima Lures Signature Series Bill Lowen Square Bill Crankbait (http://goo.gl/eRB90C) in this video. We’ll have more about balsa versus plastic and other cranking topics with Bill Lowen in future videos.
