Spawning Largemouth Bass Fishing Tournament



I participated in a one-on-one bass fishing tournament on Lake Maxinkuckee in Culver, Indiana May 2, 2020. The largemouth bass had just begun spawning in channels and the smallmouth were in the prespawn mode.

A cold spring has delayed the largmemouth and smallmouth bass spawn. Normally, both are spawning heavily by now.

In this video I catch both species of bass and discuss how I targeted smallmouth bass on the lake and largemouth bass on their beds. I give details of the fishing lures and tackle used for both.
