Winter Bass Fishing with Worms and Crankbaits
Bass fishing in winter is never easy, but at least in Texas we still can fish year round during the winter. Today I’m bass fishing with my friend Brandon fro largemouth bass using some winter fishing techniques. I’ll explain some tips and techniques on the best lures to fish for bass during the winter and how to get more bites. Fishing grubs, finesse worms, and Texas rigged worms working them slowly worked well and we caught some of our best fish using crankbaits. All of the crankbait bites were very sluggish and the bass barely had the bait. This is a sign that it is getting more difficult for the largemouth to chase down the moving baits. It’s best to throw some pauses into your retrieves in order to give the bass a chance to grab it. Despite the tough water conditions, we still managed to catch some nice bass. Next, we are heading to a lake about 3 hours from here to see if there are any bass still in the shallows on a lake that has a lot of docks. See you on the next trip Fishing Freaks!
