Winter Bass Patterns

By February 2, 2013

Follow me on:

Bass fishing this time of year can be real frustrating here in the south. Some warm days make you think the fish should be active but you can get fooled easily. Sometimes it does pay off to go bass fishing in the winter. Whether you catch fish or not it is better than sitting home!

My rule of thumb is if the water is over 50 bass bite pretty good, if it is 45 to 50 you might get a bite or two and if it is under 45 you will get a lot of casting practice without catching much. That only applies to the area I fish in middle Georgia and is my opinion. What do you think?

I had one of my best ever January tournaments a few years ago, catching a five fish limit weighing 13.63 pounds, anchored by a 5.87 pound largemouth. You can read the play-by-play in the forum - you can read as a guest or log in.

You Southern anglers crack me up! Around here in January and February you best plan on walking out on the lake rather than launching your boat and best plan on drilling before you wet a line!

Sure am glad water doesn’t get hard on top around here!
