    What is the best bait to use during the spring fishing season for bass?

    I don' know about the absolute BEST lure, but I'm real partial to plastic lizards in the early spring. Pumpkin works well for me.

      I personally like a Hildebrant 3/8oz gold blade bl/yl skirt Snagless Sally with a piece of Uncle Josh pork frog on the back of it at this time of the year in south Alabama. Now that being said, worm fishing with a Texas rig will probably be a good place to start depending on the water temperature.

        I personaly think that a hedon zara spook in lepard frog coler is the best choice for bass anytime but for early spring I like 3" tubes in any coler

            If you're up in Wisconsin's Northwoods, the best bait i've found is a chatterbait.

              during post spawn try creature baits like crawfish and frogs.

                Early spring/prespawn: suspending jerkbaits, finesse jigs, (slow moving baits)
                Spawn: Any texas rigged soft plastic(tubes, lizards, etc.) Can use tons of lures at this time
                Postspawn: Early morning topwaters, floating jerkbaits, spinnerbaits

                You can fish basically any lure throughout the spring, just try different techniques and find out your favorite

                  Ethan3 got a lot of them. In the spring I also use a jig with some sort of craw trailer.

                    Jig in pig dark blue, slow rolling a white spinnerbait, Strike King series 3 crankbaits.... for spincasters Those cheap Johnson Beetle Spin lures work great.

                      Plastic lizards are the way to go. Unbeatable.

                          depends on water color...sunny or cloudy...it depends on the water temp if the water is cold i'll search with a slower search tactic, and then pick em out with slower finesse tactics...if the water temp is warm enough and the fish are active enough...i'm going faster

                            Pre-spawn fish are not too finicky. They are trying to bulk up and speed growth coming out of winter to prepare for the spawn. The best place for them to do this is chasing baitfish against cover. Try to mimic the baitfish in your spot. Sometimes fish is not the top of the menu. Ever heard of "matching the hatch"?

                              If your down here in northern Mississippi, i recommend the pumpkin seed power worms with the bright chartreuse tails for soft plastics, and for the crank baits, i recommend a Bandit, 6-8 feet deep runner, try both natural colors or fluorecent
