Anyone who has an early itch to do some good ole bass fishing before the opener should head down to the mighty Mississippi. Water temps range drasticly from 55 degrees all the way to 70 degrees in the sloughs. The water clarity is very stained. Smallmouths were pretty active on the shallow main river rock points. Also the rip rap is always productive. Bright spinnerbaits with gold blades seemed to do the trick. Flashy jerkbaits will work fine too. Largemouths are hit and miss but can be found in the backwaters with jigs, spinners, and soft plastics. Theres a lot of smaller largemouths to be had but it takes some work to find the big 'uns. Seems to be that the big ones are hanging in packs right now. If you get a nice one to the boat theres a good chance your follow up cast can result in equal or better size.

Good Luck and Happy Fishing!

Thanks Stick'Em... I have noticed the Bass action has picked on the upper part of Pool 2 of the Mississippi River also.

All the Smallies I have seen caught on Pool 2 have been good sized as well.
