How to Catch Bass in Early Spring Shallow Cover

I love fishing early spring for the chance at a big one. Here I am fishing a pre spawn where the water is in the high 50’s and the bass are feeding in shallow water on a windy day. To target these bass I am fishing a chatter bait and lipless crankbait to pull through shallow vegetation and get a reaction strike from the bass. They crush this chatter bait with a smimbait trailer! You can find my favorite trailers (the Live Magic Shad) @

  3. It's funny in a way to think that our water temps around here just a few days ago were the same as they were for you in early Feb.
    Our season is so much shorter around here… I need to move south!
