Tube jigs, jerkbaits, spinner baits, top water, spinners or plastic worms all catch bass man. The only real "tip" I can give you is get out there and put in some time. Time on the water =fish and success.

Thanks guys. I know about Texas rigs and stuff but I have never caught a bass on a jerk bait. Have any of you caught bass here.

Rowan, bass are there, smallmouth & largemouth, and their are some healthy fish in there. Like the above posts suggest, put in some time and switch up if you need to. Here's a tip, early am works for me. I hope you have tight lines there in the future. If you practice catch and release, good for you. If you don't, they taste like crap. We always like to see fish porn, post up when you can.

Will do, and some fish I eat, but it takes so long for bass to get sizeable, so I release all of them. Thanks again!

Rowan, I'm going to give you a little advice while not trying to sound snarky, because by no mean is that the intention. Your not going to get a lot of responses because of the way you worded your initial post. Whether you meant to or not, you sounded like you were asking someone to tell you exactly what spot to fish, what lure to use, and how to use the lure. That is pretty much going to shut people down. Maybe a better way to ask the question would be

With the water temperature this time of year at Loveland, is it better to go with a slow presentation like a plastic worm or a faster presentation like a jerkbait?

That will get people talking more, and honestly, probably end up giving you more information.

And sorry, I can't help you with Loveland, though I have had good luck with both twitching retrieval and steady retrieval with jerkbaits. It is going to depend on how the fish are reacting. Sometimes an aggressive steady retrieval gets the reaction bite.
