Spring has sprung!
Weather's warming up and so are the bass.
What's your favorite lure to catch bass in the Spring?


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

A red Rat-L-Trap or Strike King red eye shad in a shad color.
If, they do not hit that, I will throw a Ned Rig.
If they do not hit that, I throw my rod/reel in the water and go home.

My favorite is a Wacky Worm Rig shallow!

I've had good luck with Smithwick gold Rogues, Super Flukes, Tx rig lizards and wacky rig Trick worms shallow. If a little deeper, I fish Carolina Rig Lizards or Brush Hogs, Chatterbaits, or traps.

I like fishing a C'rig in shallow water with grass and usually have it rigged with a Zoom Green Pumpkin / Chartreuse lizard.
