Have you planned one last fishing trip before winter or are you going to fish regularly through the season?

Agreed!

My go to bait when the water is >50 degrees is a lipless crankbait. This year I've been throwing 6-7" Swimbaits all year so I'm looking forward to see how my huds work in cold water.

I'll be fishing all winter. Feels like I have the lake to myself.

I'll also be fishing all winter. And if it gets cold enough up here for the water to ice over, my buddy and I are planning on trying ice fishing. So either way I'll still be out there!

Living where water temperatures rarely drop below 45 degrees we bass fish year around. Winterizing boats, taking our batteries out so they don't freeze, are things we only read about.

My favorite time of year. There are less boaters, less skeeters and less snakes. And the fishing on the Tennessee river is great this time of year. As far as swim baits go, I have been swimming grubs and hair jigs for years.

I'll be out there too!!! I love it, nothing like getting to the lake and seeing no one else on the water. I live in the South, and still anglers stay away during the cold days.

Very interesting. I live in mid MissourI. Gowing up the start of school in late August usually meant the end of fishing for me until next summer break because of baseball/golf/ basketball. I have renewed my bass fishing obsession this year though and am enjoying every minute of it, whether I'm catching fish or not.

Heck, I've had some of my best days here in Missouri as we transition into fall. Im excited to get out on the water in the winter months when no one else is, and prove a few people wrong that swear you can't catch fish after thanksgiving.

I'm all ears if anyone would care to enlighten me on typical bass behavior when the water temps are very cool. I'm assuming deep and slow? Similar to the dog days of summer? I could be wrong but appreciate any advice

Most of our lakes and ponds in the state freeze but I happen to be lucky enough to live within an hour of 2 power plant cooling lakes so I fish all winter long! The air temps may be in the 20's or 30's but the water temps will be in the 50's or 60's and the fish are usually at least biting a little bit and sometimes it's the best fishing of the year.

As long as there is open water, I'll be fishing. Last year we had a very mild winter and I got out quite a bit. This year looks like it may be quite a bit different though - on Saturday, the air temps started out at daybreak in the low 20's! Had ice forming on the rod guides! :)

I plan on fishing to December , then it gets to cold and the lakes freeze. You never know what is going to work.Bottom bouncing lures are good at times, crankbaits work well after a few days of warm weather. I havent done well on the local large reservoir when the water gets cold but have had good days on smaller bodies of water.

the float and fly works great; sometimes i use a gulp cricket or gulp minnow instead of the fly too, catches anything that swims

I'll fish all winter of course I'll alternate between hunting in the morning and fishing in the evening. I love this time of year.
