Is it just me or has this been the worst spawn ever? Maybe it's all the rain? How do you guys feel?

The dirty water, the crazy weather, I think it's all a factor. The first day water hit 60° I started checking and saw nothing but empty beds, haven't been able to find them. I've seen 2 solid double digit fish but won't commit. It's different this year for sure!!

U mean worst sight fishing year. I think, at least in east texas,we are going to have one of the best spawns we have had in YEARS with all the new flooded cover. Few years from now I think a few lakes will be on the upswing.

Sure has been for me, not necessarily the spawn but the sight fishing. I've caught several fish that I believe were on beds, but 1 fish all year that I was actually looking at.

I've only seen a few good fish shallow and they were cruising. I've caught several big fish since the water warmed up but they were in 10-15 foot of water. The crazy part is some of them were spawned ouT and this was right when the water hit 60.

Sight fishing has been tough for sure. It was a sneaky early, deeper spawn at some lakes. I'm already seeing shad spawning activity, they are loving the warm rains and rising water levels. Agree, should be an awesome full on post spawn topwater/frog year and great blue gill spawn also.

I thought it has been fair so far, although it has been my worst year for a tx.rigged weightless and wacky rigged senko.. They were eating it up last year.

A lot of lakes have caught 3-12 feet of water since the end of Feb. That means the fish push way back in all the cover that has been growing for a couple years.

The downfall of rising water, fish go way back in the cover and are hard to find and catch.

As far as the actual spawn goes, should be one of the best for survival of fry in many years.

I thought last spring was a worse spawn. The weather didn't cooperate, just kept getting cool and slightly warmer then another cold snap. The weather was kind of head faking the bass.

This year, I think the temperature has been better but the rain has made it hard to sight fish.

I think alot of guys, myself included, missed alot of the spawn.

We were watching water temps and not what nature was doing despite the temps. The trees were right, the amount of daylight was right, and we watched low temp muddy water and said nope they wont spawn till First week of April.

#WRONG

By first week of April the spawn was done. Saw carp and buffalo shallow that means the spawn for bass is done.

Lannie told me that and I believe him.

Then my buddy asked Rick Clunn on his FB about if carp are spawning are the bass done and the GREAT RC himself said yes thats correct lol

Regardless of water temp.

It's great for the fish. We needed a good spawn like this.
