Catch Bass During the Post Spawn Transition

Finding post spawn bass as they transition from bedding areas to summer haunts isn’t as daunting as it seems. Elite Series pro Mark Menendez provides some great location and presentation pointers for reservoir bass.

The post spawn period is marked by bass transitioning away from spawning areas to summertime feeding haunts. Finding fish can be a complex task in reservoir systems, but with a little knowledge, you can find them with some consistency and maybe even cash in on the best bite of the year. Mark Menendez talks prime locations like 90-degree turns in river channel ledges and how to thoroughly work key structures to extract maximum bites. This a great video to watch during the post spawn / easy summer transition. Equipment used: Strike King Series 5 Crankbait, Lew's BB-1 Speed Spool Casting Reel, 12-pound Seaguar InvizX Fluorocarbon, and a Lew's David Fritts Cranking Casting Rod.
