Don’t Dally for Big Bass

If visions of big bass have been leaping through your dreams all winter
long, then don’t wait till the balmy days of late spring to hook up with a
boss bass. Early spring can be the prime time to catch big bass. With the
warming water temperatures and lengthening days, this can be a great time
of year to catch some nice fish.

If you’re still a bit hesitant about braving the gusty spring winds, just
take a look at the record books. The months of March and April have
produced 15 of the top 20 largemouth bass in the state.

There are at least two anglers who could offer strong testimonials
recommending early spring fishing. Danny Hisaw recently caught a
13.28-pound largemouth from Broken Bow Lake on a soft plastic lizard. And
Rodney Genzel hooked up with a 6.94-pound smallmouth on Lake Tenkiller
during a recent bass tournament.
