Game & Fish 2016 Bass Forecast
There's no shortage of great waters to ply for bass in our state, but these may be the top spots for this year.

To all of the bank fishermen, weekend warriors, and tournament pros; winter is almost behind us and that means spectacular spring bass fishing is quickly approaching. Now is the time to sharpen those crankbait hooks, trim your favorite jig skirts and clean your grimy reels.

To help you be as successful as possible, we've helped you out and found perfect spots for fulfilling those big bass dreams.
