Winter Bass Fishing: Crankbaits, Blade Baits, and A-Rigs For Cold Water Bass

January 6, 2021 34 No Comments

Description


We’re back on the water at Chickamauga and the bass are biting! Most anglers think of January as finesse fishing time but that’s not what we’re doing! While finesse can be effective, there is something rewarding about successfully power fishing in cold water. Come along as we throw everything from crankbaits to A-rigs in search of Winter bass. 

There are 3 ways to consistently catch fish in cold water. Two weeks ago Matt talked about the power of a swimbait for drawing bites from large fish. Last week Tim discussed the benefits of finesse fishing and how you can consistently catch fish in Winter. Today we’re demonstrating how to power fish in Winter by eliciting a core feed response in the bass. Its not about whether or not they want to bite, its about reacting to a fast moving, erratic bait. 

Below you’ll find links to all the baits Matt fished in the video. He’s included the color he was throwing for each as well as the hook upgrades for the crankbait. All of the links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item.
