Of course the whole deal here is the water getting warm enough for those big mamas to move up shallow to do their thing. Here are some things to look for while searching around. I will look for areas that have some rip-rap, you know those rocky areas that are on the bank and have the sun hitting them for the larger part of the day. The sun hits the rocks and heats things up, you get the picture. Additionally, travel around and look for some early vegetation and you might be surprised that it its just not in those shallow areas. I was fishing with my son just the other day and fishing fairly deep and pulled up some nice green vegetation in the 2-3 range in some fairly deep water. Its also wise to look for a channel or creek area that spills into your water. It will generally be warmer water spilling into pathways for bass to travel back and forth to deeper and shallower waters, not to mention its a great food source for bait fish which again will attract the bass and give them all they need to travel back and fourth when needed. As always the trusty Spinnerbait, in a white predominant color is a good go too bait. If the water is clear, I would role with flourocarbon to boot. If murky water is on the menu, pull out a chartruese spinnerbait and hit the stumps lay-downs and rocks. You can also toss a texas rigged lizard, (White) or a jig and I generally like a redish color jig this time of the year. So, there you have it, follow these suggestions and you should put a few more bass in the boat. Tightlines My Friends!!
