Once bass move off the shallow spawning grounds, then use a searching lure such as a spinner bait to cover water looking for actively feeding fish.
Bass will look for ambush points when feeding after the spawn. Look for subtle drops that are adjacent to spawning flats. These areas provide adequate depth and easy access to unsuspecting bait fish.
Bass that live in river systems will use current breaks off the main river channel as feeding lanes. Because bass do not have much energy after spawning, areas such as these bring the food to the bass with very little effort.
Bass that reside in reservoirs typically spawn in the back of creek channels. Once they begin to move out of these areas, bass will often hang at the entrance of the creek looking for food.
Use a Crankbait
Crankbaits work wonders on post-spawn bass because they are actively pursuing prey. Be sure to work the bait quickly and add a pause on the retrieve to trigger a strike.
Cold fronts will shut down feeding activity on post-spawn bass. Slow your presentation by utilizing a jig around cover. Bass will feed during this time but only if a bait is right in their face.
