May: Time to cover lots of water for bass fishing

Many bass fisherman do not like the month of May. Many fish are in a post-spawn funk, and fish tend to be scattered.

How to shake a slump

I’ve had a few trips here lately that have me thinking about selling all my stuff. Then, I think about golf, and I head right back to the lake. That’ll do it every time — unless there is a pond at the golf course that I can fish. Sorry to you golfers. LOL.

The many stages of May

Bass have a whole lot going on in the spring. Spawning, fishing pressure and rising water temperatures all contribute to when and where you can catch fish.
