Jackson Kayak Spring Spinnerbaits for Bass Fishing
Jackson Kayak - Spring is the season of the spinnerbait for bass. I would characterize spring season by surface water temperatures of 58 to 65 degrees Fahrenheit. All types of spinners are popular because of ease of casting, simple performance and the high likelihood of connecting with a fish make it a staple in the tackle box of most kayak anglers. The draw of the whirling spinners is the ability to consistently convince game fish to bite. All species of bass will readily hit them, but many more of our finny friends chase em’ down too, walleye, northern pike, musky and even panfish gulp the downsized versions.
