XR-50 and XR-75 excalibur rattlin lipless cranks in Royal Red and Royal Shad have been the hot prespawn baits for the past couple of years. A jig 'n pig always gets me a big bite this time of year. Fish will be bunched up, so if you find a good one ... slow down and fish the area hard before moving on. Leave your spinning tackle at home and don't use wimpy line or you may lose the fish of a lifetime. Good luck ... and post your results when you get home.
