Good one !!! I am confused though. Why are you giving it up this time of year. If there is no ice---fish !!!! Most of my 5lb plus's over the years have been in Nov, Dec and Jan here. The colder the water, the easier they are to find. JMO. I am talking river fishing though. Again, nice fish to go out on !!!---Jim

Justfishin,

I just got back from Bay of Quinte off lake Onrario the week before thansgiving. Big water, windy & cold. My home water is Lake erie. I pick & choose  my days in the late fall based on the wind. I have fished in big waves but I prefer not to. My best fishing for big bass is in the spring prespawn. I wished the late fall was as predictable as the spring.

Don't give up on them Dwight!  Better yet, are you retired?  Make the pilgrimage to the Bronzeback Mecca here at Dale Hollow Lake and pick up a "buggy whip".  

8' plus rod + 4 or 6 lb. test + 1/16 oz. jig + 4-5lb. smallie = Hooked for life.
