this years spawn


Recommended Posts

The only possitive effect this mild winter might have on the 2012 spawn is smallmouth may spawn a little earlier. If they spawn earlier, young of the year bass go into the winter starvation period a little larger giving them a better survival rate. Nothing spawning related will happen until the water temps reach 60 and who knows when that will be. There are so may other factors that will play a roll in a successful spawn.


This mild winter should have a positive effect on smallmouth young from the 2011 spawn. Hopefully that was good one with minimal winter kill.

Lack of visibility kills smallie fry after they get off the yok sack(can't find food). What will matter is that critical rainfall amount when the largest amount of fry are hatching. Early warm temps could mean we get spawn before the big rains in May and June (Indianapolis).
