Crankbait fishing in cold water during the pre-spawn can be deadly, particularly if you choose the right crankbait. Ideal prespawn crankbaits are smaller in size, have flatter sides, tight wiggles, and a realistic crawfish or shad profile. Fish these crankbaits on light line around shallow cover like stumps, rip rap, bridges, and points. Start out with a medium-slow retrieve, and change it up if you’re not getting bit. The key to catching more prespawn bass on crankbaits is to deflect the crankbait off of as much cover as possible to trigger more reaction strikes.
