3 Top Presentations for Bass

Here we present a selection of tried-and-true presentations that match the attitude and location of late-spring bass
The late-spring season ushers in the most fun time of year to fish for bass. The whole ecosystem seems to be coming alive as waters warm and growth is renewed in the aquatic realm. The spawn typically has passed and largemouths turn to feeding. Their focus is primarily shallow, as new growth of vegetation begins to offer prime cover, while fallen trees, stumps, and brushpiles also attract bass.
Moreover, preyfish are shallow, with sunfish of all sizes swarming shorelines and shallow flats, while shad school along grasslines, docks, and riprap banks to spawn en masse, and several species of shiners cruise sand-gravel flats for their annual spawn. Feeling the need to feed, bass activity often is high, and with fish concentrated shallow, the playing field is substantially narrowed for anglers, compared to the rest of the year.
Trusting visual cues, we carefully cast light lures to key spots, focusing on small holes, piles of sticks, shallow ditches, and clumps of vegetation that can house surprising numbers of bass. Here we present a selection of tried-and-true presentations that match the attitude and location of bass. These tweaks on trusted favorites can keep you in fast action.
