The “why” of bass location
Over my many years of fishing, there are many thing I have learned to help locate fish and develop a pattern. In full disclosure, it’s not a perfect science, but it’s a way to develop a pattern. The important part of this article is to emphasize how important it is to understand what and why are bass located in one location but not in another; it is very true that 80% of the fish are located in 20% of the lake.
Don’t make these mistakes
Over many years of fishing, the winter always proves to be a challenge, and with anything that is challenging, you can easily become exempt from analyzing your own mistakes while trying to catch a fish.
Over my many years of being on the water, day after day, I have never been one to pay much attention to the lunar forecast; however, about 10 years ago, I met a gentleman who fished with me many times a year.
Winter jig fishing
There’s never been a better bait in the heart of the cold winter than a jig. Over the years, It has emulated one of the bass’ most prominent food sources, that being a crawfish. There is no doubt that crawfish become their food source of choice in the cold winter water.
Muddy time of year
As we progress through the next 30 to 45 days, the one thing that will be obvious is that we will see bunches of rain and wind mudding up the water in most of the southern lakes. there is probably no water condition that is tougher to fish in the winter than the muddy water.
