How to catch bass
Bass spawn in the spring when water temperatures reach 62-65 degrees. This can be from May to late June depending on the part of the country. Nesting usually occurs within seven to eight feet of shore in one to three feet of water. These nesting areas are bass “hot spots.” Don’t pass them up as spring is one of the best times to tie into a trophy bass. 

Growth rate varies from one part of the country to another. Southern bass grow fast and can weigh 20 pounds or more. Northern bass hardly ever go over 10 pounds, and a three pounder is considered a good fish

Little Wolfis ideal for big bass. Try to match the size of the spoon to the size of the baitfish. Whenever possible, select a lure color that comes close to the color of the baitfish in your lake.
Big bass hang out in heavy cover, so you’ll need a medium-heavy to heavy rod and a reel that’ll hold at least 100 yards of 12-15 pound test line. If you are fishing with a spinner, tie it directly to your line. Attach a Syclops spoon with a snap swivel. A swivel will impair the action of a spinner, but allow a spoon to swing freely from side to side.
During the spring and fall fish the shallows as these areas warm up first. At this time you'll want to use smaller lures. You'll also want to slow dowm your retrieve. Try the following...
