What To Throw In 40-45 Degree Water?

33 posts in this topic

I'd throw a jerkbait, then I'd throw a tube, then I'd throw in the towel.

Got first event this Saturday and that water is cold! Going over my tackle box and have the ole go toos ready.

Jerk bait

Finess jigs

Shad Raps

A Rig

Anything missing anything? Or got something to add to my over abundant tackle bag? Let me know! This is a tuff time of year so any tips advice on what to throw is welcome!

It's cold right now but next days leading up to event have some decent weather

If that water gets above 45 degrees, I would have a pre-rapala wiggle wart tied on for sure.

if the lake is experiencing warming conditions the jerkbait would be hard to beat. if the opposite is happening then your best bet will be a finesse jig.

Great thread. I bought some jerkbaits for this winter, but it has been iced over here. Killing me.

If it were me:

 

Lipless crank

 

Jerkbait

 

finesse jig

 

Shaky head

 

Drop shot

 

flat sided diving crank

 

In no specific order. 40-45 degree water pretty much describes our lakes for about a month after ice out, and those baits are what usually work for me.

 

Don't know the depth you have in the water your fishihg, but anything over 8ft some sort of jigging spoon.
