Many anglers make the mistake of fishing slowly in the Spring. As bass begin to move, anglers often lack the confidence to pursue them and instead settle for finesse fishing familiar areas. If your goal is to catch a giant bass this Spring your success hinges on your willingness to move. If you missed our previous video go back and watch it again to understand how and why the bass are moving. Once you’re confident in their movements quickly cover likely areas until you find bass that are actively feeding. 

The combination of glide baits (amazing drawing power, crankbaits, jerkbaits, and A-rigs (drawing reaction strikes), and the finesse underspin (still gets bit, even when the going gets tough) will cover every circumstance you’ll face in the Spring.
