Best Bass Month

Bass are very aggressive at this time of year, but they are also likely to be very scattered.

The month of March marks the beginning of some of the best bass fishing of the year as largemouths, with practically any kind of warming trend, start moving into shallow water looking for spawning sites. Use a crankbait and try to cover a lot of water near rocky shorelines and points, or work flats where vegetation may be present. Bass are very aggressive at this time of year, but they are also likely to be very scattered. That's why a fast retrieve lure like a crankbait can be very effective. Working a point can be very productive one afternoon, but then turn around and fish it the next day and not catch a thing. The best advice I can give you for March bass fishing is simply to try to cover as much water as possible.
