Bass: Butch Tucker says the main spawn is about over for the bass, but some fish will still be moving up around the new moon. “All in all, the bass fishing has been very good,” Butch said. The last cold snap knocked the fish back a little, but he says with some warm weather, the spawning ought to wrap up, and soon a postspawn bite will start in earnest. Butch said to fish along grasslines, especially those near deep water, with Carolina rigs, shad-colored crankbaits, and spinnerbaits. Butch said it is critical when throwing a spinnerbait to match the size of the blades to the size of baitfish in the area. “I like to throw a white skirt with No. 2 and No. 3 willowleaf blades,” Butch said. Butch said some suspended bass can always be caught this time of year in Spring Creek around the standing timber. Butch likes to Texas rig soft-plastic baits with very light weights, like a 1/16-oz., and let the worm sink slowly by the trees. “When the weather stays warm for a few days, the frogs, buzzbaits and topwater baits should work real well,” Butch said.
