Fighting a huge bass to the boat is a great way to start off your fishing season, and spring may just be your best chance to tangle with a real behemoth. Before, after, and even during the spawn, channels and cuts near beds will always have bass in them.

Bass fishing in the spring is a whole lot like that quintessential line from the legendary 1994 Tom Hanks movie. On any given day, on any given lake – you never know what you’re gonna get. In a single day, it’s very possible to encounter bass in all three phases of the spawn (pre-spawn, bedding fish, and post-spawners).
