Often, bass anglers have to dig a little deeper into their bag of tricks to find the right combination of elements that push a reluctant bass over the edge.

First, consider the basics of where they’ll spawn. Creeks, coves, backwater canals. Pretty much any shallow habitat with good sunlight and some type of cover will do.
