The Post Spawn Changeup & Bass Master Magazine
The ice-out bass fest is over, and the crazy sixty fish-a-day bed fishing slowly comes to an end. Now we are moving into the summer, deeper water patterns or weed bed patterns. Things slow down but certainly don't stop.
Now is the time for very early surface baits and soft plastics. Whopper-Ploppers can provide some heart stopping action on the surface, and baits like the D-Bomb Missile work great along the weed lines. Other effective surface lures include the usual suspects: Zara Spooks, poppers and buzz baits.
This time of year, don't be surprised if a giant Northern Pike decides to covet one of your favorite baits. Most of the lakes in the region have some monster pike in them.
And be sure to check out the next issue of Bass Master Magazine's annual listing of the top 100 lakes for bass. Out of 125,000 lakes in the country, Mid Maine has 3 listed in the top 100, nation-wide! Proof positive, Mid Maine is the place to come for spectacular bass fishing!
