Bass fishing during the winter can be one of the most challenging experiences anglers face throughout the entire year…
Since bass are cold-blooded creatures, the temperature of the environment directly impacts their metabolism and typically limits feeding activity. Not only does the cold weather effect the bass, it also takes a toll on most bass anglers since the cold temperature requires dressing properly both for comfort as well as to remain alert when on the water!
The four considerations every winter-time bass angler needs to consider to increase success during each trip include:
- Layering of clothing and other safety factors;
- Identifying good winter fishing locations;
- Water temperature and its impact on bass activity;
- Lures and presentations that work.
