3 completely different patterns emerge during the course of the day. They guys catch fish throwing a big swimbait, a jerkbait, and a creature. We’ve said many times before that the key to successful Spring bass fishing is being willing to adapt. Being willing to leave biting fish in search of bigger bites is also important.
Matt said “It was truly incredible to return to a lake after such a long break and find the bass in similar locations, willing to bite similar lures. It was as if the years had never passed.” While history fishing (fishing a spot or a lure based on unrelated past experiences) is often looked down upon there are times when it can be incredibly effective! History fishing is a great starting point as long as you don’t stay locked in to those previous patterns when they’re not producing.
Below is a breakdown of the baits and gear the guys were using during the day on the water.
