Bass fishing information, by state.
Learn the lifecycle of a bass
The more you know about the seasonal migration of bass, the more likely you are to be looking in the right area next time you visit Indiana bass fishing lakes. Bass become active in spring and begin the spawning process in shallow water. As summer arrives they move to deeper, cooler water. In fall they migrate into the shallows again and feed heavily preparing for their move to deeper water to wait out winter. Visit the bass fishing page for more in-depth information about bass activities.
