    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

    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"?

    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

    Plastic lizards are the way to go. Unbeatable.

    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.

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

    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

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

    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

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