How to Quickly Find Prespawn Bass in Grass Lakes

Water temperature is the biggest driver of baitfish and gamefish movement during the spring months.

Dark bottoms absorb heat thus warm the quickest - these areas also support the first weed growth. Lilypad fields are prime locations, providing shade and warmth. Find both and you've likely landed on the magical "5x5" area that holds a pile of fish.
