Winter may be tough fishing but its prime time to catch giant bass! Don't let the cold temperatures and tough fishing fool you, this is one of your best shots at the fish of a lifetime and you should absolutely be on the water.

This isn't the time to be exploring new baits or trying to build confidence. During the cold water months you should be focused on a handful of confidence baits so you know that you're doing the right things, even when you aren't getting bit. If you stick to your game plan the time will come that you cross paths with a truly giant bass!

We recommend a 2-pronged approach. You either need to finesse fish for bass or throw swimbaits for bass. Be sure that you don't find yourself in the middle, that is the least effective approach to Winter fishing. Again, you either want extreme finesse (like the ned rig) or extreme big baits like the basstrix paddle tail or trash fish.

Below are the baits and gear we recommend...

Winter Bass fishing can be amazing fish for largemouth, smallmouth bass, and spotted bass alike. Don't be afraid to get out, even in cold weather and do some bass fishing. When water temps are cold the fish's metabolism slows but they still need to eat. You're going to get less bites than you're used to but you'll be getting big bass bites.
