    I was just wondering in the areas were the weather doesn't change a
    whole lot, what are the spawning months. Here in Ohio it is about six
    weeks after the ice is gone and the water begins to warm, middle to late
    May for bass. Educate me my brothers.

    In Texas, we are looking forward to the white bass run starting now, the males are moving up river now. Mid February, those who like crappie will start turning on as they move up river to spawn. The bass will soon follow. The cats seem to begin in March, though maybe someone else can pin that better than me, I've only fished seriously since two summers ago and didn't do much in '06 until April.

    Going north to south, Texas is 900 plus miles "tall". Meaning it can vary by a pretty good bit depending on the part of the state you are in. The article below gives you a pretty good idea about the average spawn time in TX. I basically watch the water temps and dogwood trees. Bass and perch tend to be the first wave to spawn and when the dogwoods are blooming, both tend to be on their beds.
