Mays of the Past

Mays of the Past

Since 2012, we have published 91,829 words that describe how, when, and where Midwest finesse anglers have caught largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass during the month of May at a variety of waterways across the United States.

As anglers examine these many words about Mays of the past, they should be mindful that locations and presentations can be similar from year to year, but they can also be slightly dissimilar and even radically different.


Anglers can read all of those words in the links to the eight Midwest finesse columns below:



(1) https://www.in-fisherman.com/midwest-finesse/an-addendum-to-the-month-by-month-guide-to-midwest-finesse-may/. It contains 12,490 words.

(2) https://www.in-fisherman.com/midwest-finesse/a-month-by-month-fishing-guide-to-midwest-finesse-may-2013/. It contains 14,056 words.


(3) https://www.in-fisherman.com/bass/midwest-finesse-fishing-may-2014/. It contains 22,461 words.


(4) https://www.in-fisherman.com/uncategorized/midwest-finesse-fishing-may-2015/. It contains 21,585 words.

(5) https://www.in-fisherman.com/bass/midwest-finesse-fishing-may-2016/. It contains 20,369 words.

(6) https://www.in-fisherman.com/midwest-finesse/a-month-by-month-guide-to-midwest-finesse-for-bass/. In some ways, this is a historical analysis of Midwest finesse fishing that we wrote back in 2011. It focuses on each month of the year and it is entitled "A Month-by-Month Guide to Midwest Finesse Fishing." It contains 316 words about fishing in May.

(7) These are the links to the first and second Mays of the past columns: https://www.in-fisherman.com/uncategorized/mays-past/; https://www.in-fisherman.com/bass/mays-of-the-pasts/.
