Finding winter bass

9 posts in this topic

It’s often said that in most cases catching them isn’t as tough as finding them. That statement has never been truer than in the winter. They’ll bite for sure if you can find where they’re holding.

 In locations that do not have hard water, here’s how Greg Hackney does it ~

I really like GH's Style.

If he wrote a book, I'd buy it.

Great articles! I don't have too much experience in water as cold as he's describing, but I can vouch for the summertime pattern. In South Florida flowing water in summertime is key!

I like fishing bodies of water that are 20 acres or less in the winter. It is much easier to locate bass because there are only so many places they can be. I've had some awesome fishing experiences on small bodies of water on cold days. My experience on big lakes in the winter probably reflects the truth that the author was sharing. They are hard to find (for me anyway) until there is a 4-5 day warming trend. Sometimes bass will move into very shallow water in the winter if the surface temps climb 3 or 4 degrees over several days. I am longing for those conditions now!

A-Jay I couldn't agree more. Hackney's fishing style is very similar to mine and we present jigs the same method. What amazes me is Hackney learned to bass is southern lakes that are very different than where I fish.

Everybody likes the Hackney style!  I think some guys embellish their writing, I don't think Hackney does that.  He's a guy you can't BS and won't BS you.:)
