Post Spawn Crankbait Fishing for Big Female Bass

May 02, 2022 Fishing Tips

The crankbait is one of the most effective tools you can use when bass leave spawning flats and hide out by the nearest available cover leading to deep water.

The trick is to cast to the most obvious targets in sight – the corner of a big dock, an isolated boulder, a fallen tree reaching from the bank out toward the creek channel. These are the places that the biggest bass claim for themselves, where they ambush prey and regain some of the weight lost to the rigors of the spawn. And where they will attack a crankbait, if you put it there.

Fish—especially post spawn bass—react to lures that appeal to their senses like vision. But one of the most widely recognized senses that mature fish use to locate prey is their sense of remote feeling enabled by their lateral line. As water creates pressure waves, fish feel the movement through microscopic pores along the sides of their bodies.

A lure like the MONSTERBASS Rollo 6 will practically dare a bass to bite as it vibrates its way in and around cover. The combination of flash, color and roll—produced by its unique body design and spade-shaped bill—will attract and trigger the biggest, hungriest springtime bass.
