Bass are hitting very slow due to the inclement weather. Very slow presentations are the only way to generate a strike. Slow rolling spinner baits on submerged tree tops. Jigs, spoons and soft plastics work as long as you are working them slowly.

Bream are still very slow and will pick up more in the spring.
Catfish are loving the muddy water and some good ones are making it to the frying pan. It is still a cold trip but the fun is always there.
