    Help. I have gone recently fishing for bass and being as Wisconsin is the weather is unpredictable so what's your go to bait for cold spring largemouths. (need help as soon as possible.)

    In the last three weeks I have caught them on a small (1/16 oz.)white and red spinnerbait, a shallow running crankbait (Bomber A & Storm Wigglewart) and a #14 Husky Jerk. Anything that runs around 2-4 feet deep and can be fished in the shallows will work. We caught a bunch on a white buzzbait yesterday in about 2 feet of water. Good luck!
    We were fishing for crappie and northern but the bass were biting them too.

      I have had success in that part of the country with chub colored and shad colored Shadraps or regular #7 Rapalas run shallow parallel to the bank and around structure.I pull them pretty fast but vary the speed as indicated by success.

        Im a long way from Wisconsin but here in TN when the water was cold in early spring i used a Rapala shad, i think its a #5 which dives 5-10 ft. and was catching about 20-25 fish a day. When i was throwing around cover i would jerk it a few times and let it sit suspended and normally the fight was on after that. If all else fails go to your plastics and jig them, ive never had a bad day jigging a worm.

          As you probably figure it by now, I hunt and fish in northern WI where I'm originaly from,(but I live in SE MN, yep I'm a person that the cheeseheads call MN people LOL) Anyways I always have great luck with the tiger stripe floating Rapalas. I cast it out by sticks, stumps, logs, docks and floating bogs when the bait hits the water quickly real the slack up, stop for a sec, then I give a couple quick jerks (mimics a wounded minnow)then reel the slack, stop then start reeling it up. More times than often the bass hit it just after a gave it a few jerks. Hope this works as good for you as it has for me. GOOD LUCK!

              Fawning season and "leaf" season pretty much coincide here. By the time does start dropping fawns, the trees and understory have leafed out...
