The best part of fishing in the winter is that my treble hooks never get fouled by weeds.

Winter around here is when you sit around dreaming up plans to catch the big ones and spending tons of cash on new tackle!

This, at least it would be if I lived someplace where lakes don't ice over in winter! Lately I'm with Catt in not limiting myself to any techniques based on seasons. Who am I kidding, we all have favorites!

The way I approach things here in the Great North is in Spring, the fish are generally shallower and our lakes don't have much grass so of course no froggin or punching. Jerkbaits and tubes are always in play. Summer, the grass is at it's peak so I tend not to throw the open hook stuff that I did in Spring. Spinnerbaits, T-rigs, Senkos, frogs, etc. see more time since I focus on grass = bass. Then in Fall (Oct, Nov) it's deep water stuff, generally. Always have a dropshot rod on deck. I'm trying a new approach of not having my lures pre-rigged and waiting to decide what to throw once I get on the water and observe the wind, water temp, boat traffic, etc. Rather than having a pre-conceived game plan the night before and 'force feeding' the fish. Of course there's two or three mainstays but that's top secret, lol.

Wow there are so many different answers here! I love it! I'm definitely going to be trying some different lures throughout the seasons now. Some I would have never even thought of. and really I'm more surprised that there are more people fishing in the winter than I would have thought!
