Top 5 Baits For Early Spring Bass Fishing!


Its time to fish for giant bass! Your best shot of the year at a new "Personal Best" has arrived, don't get left behind! The early spring transition to pre-spawn signals the move toward shallow water. Big fish are moving up, they're feeding, and you can catch them. This isn't the time to slow down and finesse, its time to use a few key baits to hunt the biggest bass of the year!

Early Spring and Pre-spawn is the time to cover water. You want to focus on baits that will move quickly and that can trigger a feed response from big fish. Even if you're a finesse fisherman the rest of the year, change gears and pick up a crank-bait, chatter-bait, swim-bait, or A-Rig and start targeting those bigger fish. The fish are moving up shallow to feed, they haven't seen as many baits during the Winter, its prime time to catch them.

Below you'll find links to the related videos Tim mentioned, as well as all the baits discussed in the video. With each bait we've included our favorite colors and any additional components you may need. All of the links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
