Spring is my favorite time of year to bass fish because things change very quickly once the water starts to warm up after the winter cool down. The fishing has progressively been picking up and the bite is in full-swing right now. Although there are many lures or techniques that will catch fish, I try to cover water looking for the most aggressive bass using reaction lures. Most of our Arizona lakes have Threadfin or Gizzard Shad in them which bass love, so locating bait is the big key. You find the bait; you find the fish. It is...

There are many ways to target fish when the fish move offshore, but when they move deep and live bait is not an option, I am always looking for the best lure that imitates the closest thing to live bait.  In the winter months when water is colder, the need to eat for predator fish slows way down and so does their activity.  It’s not uncommon for bass or other species to move to depths of 40-80 feet or deeper at certain times of the year. They move to these depths because the water is more stable in temperature, has...
