Catch More Bass During Tough Transitional Periods

In the springtime just prior to the spawn, bass fishing can be relatively easy as fish begin moving shallow and gorge themselves as their metabolism speeds up with rising water temperatures. However, during other transitional periods – like spring-to-summer and summer-to-fall – bass can be more difficult to dial in. In these situations, using electronics to map high percentage offshore locations and selecting the right lure set-up are absolutely critical to getting bites.

ChatterBaits a Key for Early Season Bass

When the ChatterBait bladed jig burst onto the scene in 2006, many anglers considered it another ‘flash in the pan’ lure that would quickly slide off the radar, as seems to be so common in the fishing world. However, over the last ten years, this unique spinner/jig hybrid has carved out a permanent spot in the tackle boxes of most serious bass anglers and has repeatedly been a top producer in bass tournaments—particularly early in the year during ‘pre-spawn’ conditions.
