Most of the smallmouth were caught on an Xtreme Bass Tackle Sweet Green tube this day

Opening day for Lake St. Clair is fast approaching and the tournament season is about to get underway. We got out on the water to help anglers gain a perspective on the seasonal progress of the post-spawn bite. It can be a challenge to get five bass in the four pound class right now, but with a little savvy and structure/cover selection, you can get in the zone.

We start out in deeper water than we have been in for some weeks, looking for those post-spawn females out there randomly cruising. The flats show some promise but the bite is spread out and the fishing is slow. We were able to change that by finding a strong cabbage weed bed that held some numbers and size.

Fishing steep breaks was working for us too. Hitting the first significant break from shore produced better numbers and some size.

We have noticed a significant change in the bite that has transitioned from the Canadian Mist tube to the Sweet Green™ tube. We are learning more about this new bait and now believe that it is most effective once the waters warm up in the spring. Canadian Mist was putting better numbers in the boat during the cold water period.
