Pre-spawn Fishing Baits and Locations

Mark Davis shares his top three locations to look for pre-spawn bass and how to fish for them.



Mark Davis lives in central Arkansas, where there are a lot of highland reservoirs, like Lake Ouachita. The surrounding areas of those lakes fish nearly the same that during the pre-spawn time of the year.

When the fish start to move, Mark Davis loves to do a lot of cranking. The first good warming trend is a perfect time for a Strike King 1.5 Square bill. This bait can be fished around rock and wood with the action that the fish like during the pre-spawn.
