Cold water Crankin & Swimbaits

Recommended Posts

They were pretty aggressive today for 38 degree water. Was throwing my go to red lipless and a few other baits. Part of the lake still had ice and I saw some bass swim under the ice in the clear water. Threw the lipless and swimbaits right where the open water and the ice met and caught a bunch that way. They were not lethargic while reeling them in or at boatside as they were thrashing all around. Ended up catching 12 bass, 3 big pickerel, had another couple big ones follow the bait to the boat and turn around,  and one big yellow perch. Going to chase after them tomorrow as our weather is taking a dive next week.

Nice work Sir ~ 

And it's sort of interesting that when some one mentions 'target casting', rarely do we think of it as hitting holes in the ICE !

Good Luck Tomorrow, and if your local regs allow - I'd be real tempted to fill a bucket with those big fat Yellow fellas.

You know, for the hot fat pool . . .

That edge of the ice pattern is something I've noticed a few times before in ponds and small lakes. Not sure if it filters the sunlight or why they do that, but it's happened too many times to me to just be a coincidence.

Nice job! Good looking fish. Out weather is set to dive this weekend as well. Make the most of it!
