cold water advice

Recommended Posts

Work a jerkbait slow really slow. You can also use a jig but dont swim it. My favorite bait is a fluke and let it sink to the bottom and just twitch it.

I live in New England and just got to fish yesterday for the first time.  I used a 5 inch watermelon senko with no luck.  I switched to a 4 inch white senko with black specs and caught six all keepers.  I guess slow and small might be good advice.  Good luck!

I had great luck the other day here in Illinois with a 5" Storm Rattling soft jerkbait..  Just letting it sink very slowly while rigged weightless, and giving it a few twitches occassionally..  Caught 4 fish in 90 min. last Sunday doing this!  Biggest one was just under 3 lbs...  the water temp was also about 43-45 at the time.

I'll agree with the guys above. Water temp. here is about 42-43. A smaller jig fished very very slow works best for me.

I just caught my first smallmouth of the year two days ago, using a five inch green pumkin kinami flash. They were holding in slack water near fast current in 36 degree water. It was just a matter of getting the lure in front of them.
