We’ve already discussed “Where Bass Go In Spring”, post spawn is the exact same story run in reverse, but with a twist. After the fish spawn they’ll move to the first ledge or point along their transition route. Here they will sit for a week or two to recuperate before feeding again. This is often the time when anglers feel lost and begin to panic about where the fish have gone. As soon as this period ends, the fish make a split. Half of the bass follow the remainder of the route out to deep outside or offshore structures and the other half push back in to the shallows.

The fish that turn shallow are the most fun because you’re able to power fish them (flipping, punching, and frogging) but the fish that head offshore school up into mega schools and offer a whole different kind of excitement! It doesn’t matter which direction you go, you’re going to have a great time targeting either group of bass.

Below is a breakdown of the baits and tackle we’re using to target these fish throughout the transition process and beyond.
