If I had to choose just one lure for early spring bass it would be an old-fashioned soft plastic bait. They may lack the flash and popularity of other baits, but I believe nothing comes close to their ability to catch early spring bass.

Bass Pro Shops® Weekend Warrior Bass Kit is overflowing with a huge selection of the best soft plastic bass baits on the planet!

The key to fishing these soft plastics during this time of year is to go with smaller, natural presentations. Fish them very slowly, keeping any unneeded movement to a minimum. Bass are not going to chase fast-moving lures at this point in the season. Give the bait a small twitch every few seconds and hold on.

Using these lures in the right situations and settings should help with early bass season dry spells. They continue to be among the most effective baits there are, and they have a proven track record of catching bass that are still shaking off the winter doldrums.
