Well folks its getting to be that time of the year again! Bass fishing was ON FIRE today. Started out with a nice one on a pumpkinseed worm in selma then met my girlfriend at the farm and caught some nice ones. First one came on a live minnow she was fishing for panfish and as soon as it hit the water I counted 9 boils and her bobber disappeared. I reckon I taught her good because she took her time and fought that big bass in on my light action rod with 6# line. I tied on a spinner bait and went to work casting at the school and immediately hooked up with a nice one who engulfed the spinner. I then switched to a buzz bait and pulled in another nice bass on my first cast. We spent the rest of the time there chasing that school around with the buzz bait and I missed a couple more while she caught a few panfish. I absolutely love catching fish on buzz baits and it was definitely the most fun I've had bass fishing in a long time. Add to that the 6.5# bass I caught yesterday and I'd say it's shaping up to be a pretty good week! Going out Friday with one of the amazing guides on this site for drum hopefully so wish me luck.

most of the bass I saw today were in less then 2' of water. At the pond in selma I saw a lot within a few feet of the bank in 8" of water just sitting there ignoring everything I threw. The only reason I decided to throw a buzz was because the whole school was in shallow water and I knew I already had the bass angry enough for a reaction strike. I was shocked how hard they hit today. Night and day difference from last week. They about completely swallowed the buzz and the spinner.

I never pick up a buzzbait til the grass emerges. May have to re-think that situation.
Yeah I was thinking mid April about start of top water buzz bait action but man I will have to try this. Last week during the long skunk I almost thought about throwing a buzz. Last night crappie fishing something was busting a school of bait but all I had was my crappie gear.
