I asked my friends from all over North America to tell me their favorite way to target Bass post-spawn. Here they are!
Once the bass are off beds I’ll concentrate on that area because I know the fish will be nearby. I’ll look for cover. I like swimming a jig near docks or using a plastic Jerkbait.
Yamamoto senko….rigged a few different ways. You can’t go wrong with that bait!
I’m a jig fisherman at heart, and I love to pull out the jig whenever I get the chance. As soon as the bass come off the beds and a lot of the large females are still hanging out under docks, matted grass, bushes, timber, or whatever else is available, I love to get back in there and fish the jig. To me, there’s nothing quite like the feeling of a big bass slamming a slow fished plastic.
The Freedom Tackle Stealth swim jig for lock-jawed post spawners, it has a removable hook system which allows the trailer to move and wave giving it more action while still keeping a subtle, stealthy approach for catching spooky post-spawners.

Without a doubt the number one bait I throw to catch numbers is a wacky rigged Senko…but my favorite big bass bait is a top water frog for post spawn giants!
