Understand Seasonal Patterns
Seasonal patterns play a vital role in an angler's ability to locate and catch bass. In general, bass tend to migrate toward shallower water during the warmer months and back to deeper water in the colder months. Since they’re cold-blooded, they burn more energy in warm water requiring them to eat more.
Spring and Fall are the best times for bass fishing, especially if you're able to dial in their location and eating pattern. After a cold hard winter, bass will usually begin to move shallow water and start feeding heavily. During these times anglers can have outstanding days on the water. The successful bass angler always keeps an eye on water temperature as it plays a vital role in the bass's level of activity.
