cold water ?

Recommended Posts

hey well lately the water has been really hot then i get back from nebraska and the water feels like its freezing and the lures are like ice when you bring them in and all so i was wondering what to do to catch bass when the water drops dramatically like that.i have a tournament monday we caught 5keepers today on senkos and we didnt see the bass cruising like we usually do alot were on the edge of dropoffs but i want to  have better luck and more fish in the tournament. thanks.

My personal opinion is that the water temperature shouldn't play a huge factor in where the bass are, but it my play a factor in how active they are. Since you are fishing in ultra-clear water horizontal presentation and reactionary baits/lures will most likely prove more effective than drop shotting or jig 'n pigin. The cold water may make the bass less active for a few days, maybe more, meaning you are going to have to have to make the bass strike. Running crankbaits, jerkbaits, and spinnerbaits over and around those weedbeds and docks are going to be your best bet. I'd give that a try first. If it doesn't you can always toss in a Senko and play with it, but I think the horizontal baits should be effective. Happy Fishing.

Since the fish will be less active you might want to slow down your retrieve a bit because they might be to lazy to hit something they have to work hard for.
