The bass bite continues to improve with this warming trend and should continue this trend on into March as the fish begin to spawn. As a whole, the bass should be in a pre spawn pattern and feeding. Be on the lookout for cruising males in the clearer backwater areas as they search out a suitable spawning site. Spinnerbaits, swimbaits, bladed jigs and have been the lures of choice for those active pre spawners. If you can't find clearer water, try throwing Colorado bladed spinnerbaits and square-billed crankbaits as they will catch those active prespawn fish in those murky waters. The crappie are starting to bite and anglers are coming out as well. Look for the fish to be holding on wood and grassy cover as they start to feed up before they spawn. Both minnows and jigs are working, but try dark and bright color combos on your jigs. The bite should only improve over the next few weeks.
