    i'm heading to south eastern ohio for a fishing tournament towards the middle-end of may. how do i determine weather the bass are spawning, pre or post spawn. most of the fishing areas are abandoned strip mines. any tips are welcome. thanks.

      Bass will be post span and some will be down deep. try useing white 1/4 ounce dollflies on light line and wair for the tug instead of the flick on the inhale.
      Also jig them slowly up and down the face of the walls as this is the only structure when the mines are old enough to have any fish in them that has any size, the same technique that we use in winter in west tourneys is a good starting point. Yellow and chartreuse may be of some use also. Good luck and log back with how you did in the tour. And good luck buddy/ fisherman.

        here is the thing though, ive never had any luck jigging there or with chartreuse. ive only had luck with pumpkin seed the dard green flippin tubes. i caught a five pounder last year with a deep crank bait. there are very few walls that lead into the water. there are a lot of upright trees in the water. also, we're fishing out of float tubes so fish finders are out of the question. should tie a pool thermometer to my float tube?
