As lakes warm in the spring, largemouth bass move into shallow cover in coves, canals, and harbors. They seek warming water offered by these spots that also provide plentiful baitfish. Bass are eager to feed, but not yet aggressive in the cool water.
Another great knot from Berkley to learn that is especially key when using NanoFil.
River currents prevent these waters from freezing when flatwater impoundments are ice-covered. With careful presentations, river largemouth can be caught. First, look for areas with minimal current where bass move for the winter. The upper ends of backwaters or dug-out ponds and harbors off the main river are prime locations.
Flash lures are one of the most popular jigging lures for ice fishing. Potential jigging sequences are limited only by your imagination and your interpretation of how fish are reacting. Yet, just as no secret lures exist, neither does a secret jigging sequence.
One of the hottest tactics on the pro bass trail is working deep structure with jigworms, sometimes called shaky-head worming. Once it gets cold, largemouths favor steep rocky banks along the main body of the reservoir.
Trout, browns, brookies, & rainbows are coldwater species, so they like cold water and remain active under ice cover. One key to trout location in reservoirs and lakes is finding shallow flats (4 to 8 feet deep) with soft bottoms.
When water temperatures tumble below the low-40?F range, bass often move from mid-depth flats to more vertical structures. Fast-breaking edges allow bass to change depth easily, without traveling long distances.
Swimming lures designed to represent real baitfish are great wintertime baits. They tend to work best in clear water and specific spots, particularly during the changing light periods of dawn and dusk, when walleyes commonly feed during the winter period.
Smallmouths can winter deep in reservoirs, down to 50 feet or deeper. Wherever 50-foot flats exist, that's where they'll be - whether it's in a creek arm or the main reservoir. The classic approach is to find them with sonar and work them with jigging
Winter is a fantastic time to catch big lake trout through the ice. This type of fishing often requires mobility as it can take quite a bit of searching to find active lakers. They can roam main-lake basins where they suspend in the water column to feed on open-water baitfish.
