Spawning Smallmouth Bass
The smallmouth bass are beginning to spawn. The perfect water temperature for spawning smallmouth bass is 55 degrees. So grab your baitcasting or spinning reel and check out the temperatures at your favorite lake.
Besides having the perfect temperatures, you’ll also want the right lure and bait. Try using a curly tail that vibrates through the water or use jerkbaits in clear water lakes. A minnow also seems to work well in clear water lakes. Last but not least, try fishing near fallen trees, rock banks, shallow rock piles, piers and docks. Smallmouth bass seem to congregate around these areas.
