Catching Winter Bass On Almost Every Cast!

December 23, 2020 51 No Comments


Think Winter Bass Fishing is tough? It doesn’t have to be! When you understand how the fish are positioned and which baits will trigger them to feed, it can be amazing! Come along as Tim explores a brand new lake and starts getting bites from big bass on his very first stop!

Most anglers think of Winter as the time to stay at home. If you are going out, you’re probably finesse fishing, dragging small plastics along the bottom. While slow finesse fishing can be effective, its a whole lot more fun to get fish to react! In today’s video Tim is using a handful of key baits to break down a new lake without any mapping. He’s combining visual clues along the shoreline with his vast fishing knowledge, to immediately catch fish. Pay close attention to the details he’s teaching throughout the video and apply them to your next day on the water. 

Tim used a handful of baits and some very specific equipment to catch these fish and to map the lake for future trips. Below you’ll find links to all of the gear he used. The links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
