There is almost nothing better than to hit the lake and quickly determine where fish are holding and how to consistently catch them!
Pre-spawn fishing in the spring is definitely one of those times when pattern fishing with lures like crankbaits can be just the ticket to load the boat with quality bass…
In the following video, Bassmaster Elite Pro, Mike “Ike” Iaconelli shows how it’s done on Table Rock Lake just after the 2014 Elite Series event ended…
Take note of the little details Ike gives, namely how to :
- identify key pre-spawn fish-holding areas;
- determine what the fish are eating; and
- tweak your crankbait for more solid hook-ups.
You might also want to pay attention on how he works the bait with a sporadic stop and go type retrieve 😉
