    A reel with a different retrieve ratio is called for when you’re fishing different baits.

    One speed fits all?

    A spinnerbait is a versatile weapon that should occupy an important place in every bass fisherman’s tackle box, especially during the spring prespawn period.

    As the prespawn approaches, big female bass like to stage around cover such as vegetation, brush, stumps or trees in shallow water close to deep water.

    Big female bass will stage on steep banks when they make their first move out of deep water this month. content dictates

    When buying hard baits, make sure you buy baits that will run to different depths, especially the ones you’ll spend the most time fishing.

    Striped bass aren’t slowed down by cold water, in fact, they are much more active when the water temperature drops to 50 degrees or lower.

    Have a holiday striper

    Topwaters, swimbaits, bucktails are effective

    A crankbait is a great tool to catch bass in November, when they’re bunched up, relating to baitfish in transition between seasons.

    Crank yourself up a bass

    November is time to keep ‘plugging’ along

    Deep-jigging with a spoon along edges of a river channel is often a great way to  catch a big stringer in November as the water cools and bass move back to deep water.

    Just about anyway, anywhere you want

    Fishermen can stick to a handful of basic crankbait colors and have something in their tackle box to fish in almost any season or situation.

    Pick a color, any color — maybe

    One of Davy Hite’s favorite topwater baits is a Zara Spook, which can be worked with a fast or slow retrieve depending on whether bass are spawning, in postspawn or chasing blueback herring.<br />

    Topwater bite is tops when May arrives
