- The buck bass are starting to create and guard the beds for the spawn. Water temp is around 58 to 62 degrees.I have been catching them on a shakey head with a trick worm from inches of water to 6 feet.

Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions:
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be slow with the water temperature at 41 degrees. If you have a chance to get out on the water, you are going to have to fish deep and slow. Jig fishing and Plastic baits may be your best bet this time of year for largemouth bass. You may also try fishing some sinking jerk baits.

I have been fishing the past two weekends with much success. Of course it took a while to figure those rascals out. The middle of the lake is stained green with algea, so the water is somewhat clear. Water temp is 52 to 58 degrees. The bass are about ready to spawn and that is the first clue. Bass spawn in the shallows (backs of creeks), so they will be close to these areas.

The fish on the southern end of the lake are spawning or have already spawned. The bass in the middle to northern end of teh lake are still going through the motions. Use a lizard, shakey head with a trick worm, or a wild colored foating worm to entice a strike.

March 30, 2013 water temp 52-56 degrees, stained. I concentrated in the middle section of the lake. The bass have not gone to bed for the spawn in full force yet. Just starting to see a few bedded bass. The majority of active fish are on the closest ambush point near the bedding areas waiting for a meal to come by. Believe it or not, top water plugs and shallow running crank baits are the ticket. Fished a tourney Saturday and came in the money with 13 lbs and change. Caught 15 bass or so and culled a few times. The full spawn is just around the corner
