Hey all... wanting to plan a fishing trip somewhere new, or at least somewhere I haven't been in a long while. I have a 16' aluminum boat with a 9.9 Johnson and a 40 lb thrust bowmount trolley motor. I had a 25hp that came with the boat, but traded that in for the 9.9 recently after learning most lakes in southern Az have a 10hp restriction. Pretty lame, seems you can get a much higher hp outboard for the same cash as a 9.9 just due to the restrictions it seems. Anyway, that's the extent of my gripes for this post...
I've been spending a lot of time at Pena Blanca, but have grown bored of the trout fishing. I have a tackle box full of soft plastics, crankbaits, jerk baits, spinners, spoons, creature baits, jigs... etc all designed for bass, but have yet to hook up to one yet. I hear a lot about the spawn season, but I'm still pretty much in the dark when it comes to bass behavior. What do you guys recommend? Where and when do you fish? What have you had good luck with in the past? Thanks for your help.
