Though winter patterns are still effective at times, bass are on the move. Most pre-spawn techniques are proving effective. Though fish will feed during the day, get on the water early for more aggressive and fast paced action. Cloud cover and a little wind will extend this morning feed. Find the threadfin shad and you will find largemouth bass trying to pack on some weight in preparation for spawn. Pay attention to water temperature and clarity. Clear is better than muddy, warmer is better than colder.
