After the recent string of GOOD weather, I was starting to see some signs of the bass spawn getting ready to kick into high gear. I have caught many fat females so far, and I have got some randy males in the shallows scouting for nesting sites. I even started seeing some nests, and nest attepts. The dogwood tree in my front yard is also in full bloom. That usually is an idicator of when the spawn is in full go. I think the dogwoods bloomed a little early this year, and I think they are slightly ahead of the bass. My question is, what is the EXACT temperature range that bass spawn in? The only guide, or indicator I have used in the past has been the dogwood trees. But with this snowstorm, and windy, cold weather pattern that has taken it's grip on the region, what affect will this have on the bass? I assume this will severely deter and push back the majority of the spawn. The water was 54 degrees last Sunday at LaDue, and I am sure it went up a few degrees over the rest of the week. But it cooled down later in the week and is downright cold now. I think at Mogadore and LaDue we may have seen some early spawners already, but am I correct to assume there are still plenty of the bass population to spawn yet? Again, what is the temp range bass prefer for the spawn? And does anyone intimately familiar with LaDue or Mogadore know if the bass have done their thing? Or is it still to come? Please let me know your thoughts pertaining to this weather and how it will affect the bass spawn in NEO. Thay are saying we might get a foot of snow!!!
