KY Afield Outdoors: Trophy Largemouth Bass Time

By Lee McClellan

Frankfort, KY - Now that the Kentucky-based teams are no longer in the NCAA basketball tournament, the Final Four isn't nearly as exciting, and somewhat depressing, to watch.

The best cure for any bruised feelings left by March Madness is to get out in early April and chase largemouth bass. A huge largemouth bass shaking its head vigorously trying to throw your white spinnerbait soothes any broken basketball heart.

Water temperatures range from 52 degrees at Lake Cumberland in the east to 58 degrees on Kentucky Lake in the west. In other words, it is prime time.

"With water temperatures in the mid-50s, the big female largemouth bass are staging," said Jeff Ross, assistant director of Fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "They are moving from their deeper winter locations to spawning locations in the shallows. They definitely work their way shallow in stages, but a cold front can push them back for a short period."
