Is Fishing For Spawning Bass Wrong?
I want to pose the question, is it wrong to go bass fishing for spawning fish? On a recent bass fishing trip to a big east texas lake after a hard cold front, I found that bed fishing was one of the only ways to get these largemouth bass to bite. Over the coarse of filming some other video there the day before, I saw 3 bass over 7 pounds in the shallows, including a giant bass I believed to be over ten pounds. The colder water in the lake down on the southern in was holding many more spawning bass, but with the lake wind advisory, we weren’t able to get down there. We ended up fishing shallow shoreline grass lines with with swimjigs and spinnerbaits but only catching small fish. I found a few pairs of spawning fish on beds and was able to fish a jig and creature bait on the beds to get the fish to bite, but the bigger female bass were very stubborn and wouldn’t eat. I wan’t to know your opinions on bed fishing for bass and what do you think the consequences are. Is it really that bad for the future of fishing?
