fighting the cold and rain??

Recommended Posts

Ohio has been the definition of a mixed bag of weather.  I had to literally mow my yard in the snow Saturday.  Temps bounce up and down and more rain is in our forecast.  Aside from the obvious of moving :)  what might you all look to as a strategy.   water temp has never topped the 50's even on the warmest stretch.   Bassing has likewise heated up only to turn back to ice.    My approach has been lipless cranks and jigs.  Jigs have been the only producer to date for me.  any Suggestions on I might have better results with: especially on the colder stretches

When the going gets tough, the tough throw jerkbaits. Our Wisconsin weather hasn't been any better, I've been saving myself from getting skunked by throwing Shadow Raps. I do two jerks, then let them sit for 10-15 seconds, then three jerks. Rinse and repeat.

We haven't gone back to ice just yet but we had a few 70 degree days followed by high 30 degree days. They were on the beds and quickly back off of them. It's made for some frustrating trips on the water. I've gotten most of my bass on lipless/ squarebills in this odd weather.

We had cold and rain yesterday and I killed them on a bladed jig and a beaver along the emerging weedlines.
