do you have any warm water discharge places such as powerplants near you?   drop offs , fish slow.

 

This is cut and pasted from the Southern NH thread this morning.

 

i did get out on Cobbetts yesterday. I brought minimal gear 3 rods, and I really only needed 1. The fish as expected were on the deep water drops, near flats and points. Small soft plastics were the ticket on a heavier jig head, as would be expected. No fish on the jig or the blade, which was a little unexpected. I boated 13 LMB and partner boated 17 for total of 30. In recap it was a great day on the water for the second week of December. The weather was actually very nice. Water temps started the day at 37F by the end of the day it warmed upto 39F.

I've been fishing down in the Fall River  Ma. area every weekend and only caught one fish a day average,and last weekend didn't caught anything,I've using jigs and using crank baits in 15 feet of water,my handy cap is I don't have a deep finder so I'm just fishing kind of blind,the good thing it's forcing me to fish in deeper water I'm not use to.Just go out dress VERY WARM fish slow.I'm not quitting  till there's ice on the pond lol. Good luck buddy

find your favorite pond if it still has soft water find rocks and throw jigs with a small profile, jerk baits, and drop shots. that works for me.


 


Good Luck


 


p.s. water will be cold so if you don't get a lot of hits don't get discouraged!!!

I found a pond in my area that's fed by a warm water spring - pumping in 52-58 degree water into the body of water year round.  Even now, with snow on the ground and hard water everywhere else, this small lake (15 acres) is completely open.  Air temps are in the 20's.  Might make the hike to it tomorrow and wet a line. 

 

I'll probably keep it simple - senkos, jigs, & jerkbaits.  Any other recommendations?  The water is rectangular, running east to west, with the spring being in the south west corner of the lake.  The south shoreline follows the bottom of a small mountainside with heavy tree cover, so it doesn't get any sun.  Do you think I should focus on the spring location or hit the sun lit norther shore?

With those water temps i would start with a slow moving crank bait or work a suspending jerkbait slowly. Also depending on depth i would not hesitate to throw a popper, but pop it slow. If its deeper water i would throw a spinner also worked slow. If you can find some rocks that are exposed to the sinlight i would throw a rage tail craw. The rocks will adsorb the sunlight and add a degree or 3 .... if there are craws you might find them there, so you would most likely find fish..... i would try sunny area first. My opinion.

If the water stays that cold (seems warm now but in the summer 58 is freezing!) year round there may not be many bass. Put some trout in there and make them your pets!
