Lake James Bass?

Postby JDO » Mar Wed 01, 2017 8:39 pm

I have a kayak tournament out on lake james on April 15th. I'm not going to have a chance to pre-fish it so I was hoping someone would be generous enough to offer some tips on the lake. Should the spawn be underway at that time? The main target is bass. Thanks in advance for your help

You will be early for the spawn , but they will be seeking warmer water so channels & shallow flats should be your concentration. A map and a little homework will show these areas. Where are you launching from ?

I have never fished there. Depending on this crazy weather we have been having they could be in either prespawn or it the spawn could be underway.

If there are any piers in, try them. I've always had my best luck on James fishing shallow.

Thanks for the replies guys. I'm not sure where I'm launching yet as there are numerous launches available to choose from

There are almost always bass under the docks at the Potawatomi Inn, if they're in.
