Where Do Bass Go During Early Spring? (And How To Catch Them)

Forget the Winter haunts, bass are on the move! The Prespawn is approaching and the fish are beginning to push toward their Spring spawning grounds in huge numbers. Its still early in the transition but if you’re not following their movements they’ll leave you behind. Come along as Matt explain where they’re heading and how to stay ahead of them! 

Whether you fish a reservoir, lake, river, or pond, there is information in this video for you. Matt explains exactly where bass are heading in each style of fishery. Once you understand how and why the fish are moving, predicting their next move becomes very easy. 

This is not the time of year to stick with old patterns and hope to run into fish. You need to actively stay ahead of their movements, fish key locations, and adjust constantly to find the big, prespawn females you’re searching for. Below is breakdown of the equipment used in the video as well as some of Matt and Tim’s favorite baits this time of year.
