Bass fishing in the early spring or late winter can be some of the most challenging days for catching numbers of fish. During these few weeks, the largemouth bass will start to move in and out of shallow water to begin staging to spawn. In this series of videos with lunkerstv we have discovered during this challenge that the best way to catch the bass in shallow water is to use weightless senkos and fish them slowly in 1-5 feet of water. Another technique that is good is the caronlina rig. Using a carolina rig with a small soft plastic worm and dragging on the bottom around points where bass like to stage is usually a good way to hook into a big bass. We only had one big bass bite today and it got off. Water temperature is crucial this time of year. Largemouth bass love to move into shallow water and start spawning around 62 degrees. You will see in this video that the fishing was really tough in the morning after a cold front came in and then it picked up in the afternoon with the sun comes out and starts to warm the water. The male largemouth bass are the first fish to start moving up and then the big female bass will follow in the later days and weeks. After feeding heavily before the spawn, big largemouth bass will just hang out in the water around stumps, grass and anything they feel comfortable around until the water temperature and moon phase is right for them to move onto the bank. These days and weeks are the worst days to be bass fishing because the bass don't want to eat, the just want to hang out until the it's time to spawn.
