In March I go shallow for LMB.
Surprisingly you can find some biters around shallow docks and cover during this cold water period. Big Bass!
In the report section for March you'll see proof positive of shallow Big Bass cruising and Bass pulled out of 4' of
water from under a dock recently by a couple savvy WA Lakers.
I am dying to get out, why, because Bass can be caught right now!
Personally I've nailed lots of Bass shallow during this cold water period, the Bass are programmed to eat and
reproduce. They are full of eggs and come in looking around and hold on shallow docks or structure, no matter
what the water temp is doing. They tend to shift in, and back out. The bass's desire to reproduce pushes them
shallow to check it out before the water temps are warm enough to spawn.
Slow and small are the ingredients for success.
This is the cold water period prior to the pre-spawn movement and it can be killer. Remember not all the Bass
are doing the same thing, and some are using and holding on docks and shallow cover during different times of
the day. Coolest part, nobody is there!!! You own the lake.
Cast first, worry later.
