In late May and early June, Tennessee bass begin to make their way into main channels and to offshore points where they school and can be caught in bunches. Mullins said that’s his favorite time to catch bass, and he’s certainly not alone.
Similar scenarios apply in a good portion of the U.S, give or take a few weeks on either side of the month. So if you live in Tennessee, the Carolinas, northern Alabama, the Ozarks, Kentucky, in the Midwest or up the East Coast, May and June should be prime time for bass fishing.
With that in mind, consider what Mullins listed as his five favorite bass lures for late spring and early summer. He offered a variety of options, and at least one is sure to fit just about every angler’s style.
