In many areas of the Midwest, walleye fishing for the next couple of weeks will be one of transition. And, with the strange weather so far this year, this transition period could be even a few days longer than ordinary.
Spring sight fishing: perhaps nothing is more nerve racking than seeing a big bass hovering over a bed with a perfectly pitched soft bait lying inches away. Polarized sunglasses help see through the glare and optimum sunlight provides great color contrast.
Being the scientific sort, I have occasionally sat by at family reunions quietly studying the eating habits of our collective teenage boys. Watching them eat can be an awesome experience and it takes on a whole new dimension when they eat hot dogs.
During a recent test my partner and I had done just ok on our first day of fishing. We decided to give what looked to be a promising point one last try. Unbeknownst to us (and unreported by the weatherman), an intense storm system was heading our way. We had fished the point once again unsuccessfully for about 10 minutes when the storm hit.
Oh, I know it might be cold in the mornings and I know that little cold fronts will turn off those Florida strain largemouth but Pre Spawn is still my favorite time of year to bass fish. The fish are bigger now than at any time of the year, they are bunched up and easy to catch. What more can we ask for?
OK. I'm really ready. I'm ready physically; I'm in great shape. Coming off one of the best seasons of my career, I'm ready mentally. And my tackle for the Bassmaster Classic is packed, ready to go. Packing tackle might sound a little lame but it is not. It's not just throwing a bunch of this and a little of that in a bag and calling it good it's a process. You need to take into account all the many different variables and factors of wherever it is that you're going. Seasonal patterns for the region, historic weather patterns, fishing pressures and the lake itself are all extremely important.
Wherever you fish, the stories are almost the same. Bass fishing is a warm-weather activity. Fall makes its way into winter and the boats get winterized and packed away with the rods and reels until spring. Fish are cold-blooded creatures so there's no way they have any interest in feeding on anything an angler has to offer while the mercury is dipping.
It is always about the presentation. Successfully Skippin' a bait across the surface of the water to a cruising bass takes a certain amount of practice. Oh, but it's worth it.
Fishing unfamiliar water during an unfamiliar time of the year is nothing new to BASS pro and Berkley ® Pro Staff member Scott Rook. With limited time during competition to locate and catch fish, this Arkansas pro turns to one of his strong suits crankbaits to help put him on a winning pattern.
