Spawning bass are fun to fish for and fun to catch.   Grandson Garrett and I found lots of fish in shallow water.   They preferred watermelon with red and blacks flakes.   All fish were released.

Kurth Lake Lunker

garrett-031616a

Grandson and I fished Kurth Lake during Spring Break.   A few female bass were on their spawning beds.   This seven pound momma hit an 8″ Glide Swimmer Lure.   The lure glides thru the water on a steady retrieve or darts with slight twitching of the fishing rod.   He fishes the lure with 85 pound test braided line as it is a big fish lure.  This big sow just inhaled the lure.   We were fishing in about five foot of water.   He was excited when she exploded on the lure.   After the photo, she was released to return to her friends.   All bass above 16″ are required to be released.
