April Bass Lure Fishing

April Bass Lure Fishing


Lure fishing for bass in April, although sometimes nerve wracking can be an exciting and rewarding experience. As the weather begins to warm up, the water temperature increases, and the fish start to become a little more active. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your time on the water.

  1. Choose the right lure: There are many types of lures available for bass fishing, but in April, it's best to go for lighter lures that mimic the bbaitfishlike the Fishus Espetit  (bit.ly/40WCLKJ) soft shads and the Espetit Jerk Sp lures are all good choices.

  2. Focus on structure: Bass love to hang out around structure such as rocks, piers, and weed beds. Look for these areas and fish your lure around them. Slowly retrieve your lure, pausing every so often to let it sink and imitate a wounded baitfish. 

  3. Time your fishing: Bass tend to be more active during low light periods such as dawn and dusk. Try to plan your fishing around these times to increase your chances of success.

  4. Vary your retrieve: Bass can be picky about how they want their bait presented. Especially as the water is still a little cold, use different retrieve speeds, pauses, and jerks to see what works best on any given day.

  5. Practice catch and release: Bass are a valuable resource, and it's important to take care of them. Use barbless hooks, handle them gently, and release them quickly to ensure they survive to fight another day.

By following these tips, you can increase your chances of catching bass while also enjoying a fun and fulfilling day on the water. Remember to always follow local regulations and practice good stewardship of our natural resources.

Tight lines!
