id definitely have a jig tied on at all times.  if the water is reasonably clear i would also have a jerkbait tied on as well.  you may be able to catch some shallow but i would definitely stay on areas that are at least near deep water.

jbomar,

Since you are in Valdosta, GA, I would guess your water temperatures are at least in the 50s to 60s.  (Just guessing since I'm in Missouri.)  If so, you could use a number of lures on Saturday.  I'd think crankbaits in shallow water down to 8 feet would be good.  Plastics, spinnerbaits, lipless cranks, jigs, and jerkbaits should be productive too.  I'm not exactly sure how cold it has to get where you are at for the fish to start moving into a winter pattern.  I'm sure there are people from that area on this forum who would know.

In the Winter and early spring, sometimes the bite can be really slow until the sun gets high and warms the water a bit.  I focus on chunk rock which radiates heat, and would throw a nice tight wobbling crank.  I am fond of the Lucky Craft Moonsault, and would probably throw the moonsault cb-200, 250, or 350, which has an extremely tight wobble and is incredibley loud.  Stick to shad colors.

I go out to the deepest part (20-40ft) of the lake, and drop a jigging spoon.  The key is to FIND SHAD, by any means possible.  Drop the lure slow because bass are slow this time of year and in drop and rase it in short little bursts.  This immitates a ding shad and the bass being just plain lazy will hit it because it is an easy meal.  You can also catch trophy blues and other tropht fish.
