I picked out some of my favorite early winter bass fishing lures for fishing as the water starts to get cold and fish turn to their prespawn and winter patterns. Choice baits this time of year are hardbaits such as jigs, crankbaits, Red Eye Shad style trap lures – however swimbaits still play a big roll I have some super unique micro swimbaits to share with you. A rigs or umbrella rigs are also a big deal on lakes like Chickamauga, Guntersville, and any lake that is shad focused. The new Gambler Goat Locked Up Swimbait Head is perfect for a rig and we review it. Just remember, the best part about this time of year is if you brave the winter weather and put your time in bass fishing these cold water conditions can produce some of the biggest fish of the year – there is a real opportunity for an angler to catch a PB or trophy bass.

It was an epic day on the lake! I caught my Lake Guntersville PB fish using a fishing lure I made for Gambler Lures for swimbait fishing. Alabama rigs are great lures this time of year for cold water and I stumbled on a pattern for fishing grass on shallow submerged points with small swimbaits. The bass were were keyed on shad and I would use the swimbaits to mimic bait balls in creeks and at the mouths of creeks. The way I fish an umbrella rig is really more like a spinnerbait. I use a shorter fishing rod and a smaller rig so that I can cast it more accurately and fish it all day with less fatigue and more efficiency. I’m so stoked I finally caught a GIANT bass out on Lake Guntersville – definitely my PB and it made it especially cool to do it with a homemade jig.

It’s swimbait time – big winter and spring bass are chewing and giant artificial lures like glide baits and jointed swimbaits are awesome tools for catching giant bass. I have been collecting some fishing lures – some of them rare and some of them available at tackle shops but I want to be ready to learn how to fish more glide baits and large swimbaits for bass this winter. I even got a crazy ultra realistic line thru glide bait that was literally designed from a real shad!!! I love catching big fish and there is no doubt swimbait fishing is a great technique for targeting trophy bass and it’s also an insanely cool way to fish for bass! Thanks to Kevin the Baitman Baxter – throw him a sub https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCup6q6q-j1i4OGjhsjrbLPA The Shizzard should be available soon more info @doubledigitbass on Instagram Huge thanks to Rod and make sure to give him a follow @rwhallman His artistry on the real shad line thru glide bait was amazing!!!

I try to make fishing as simple and easy as possible especially when it comes to looking for and finding fish on a new lake. One of the things I like to do during the cold weather winter periods is do some pre fishing using my lake contour maps so I can plot out a plan for what parts and structures of a lake look like they’re good to fish. Structures likes humps, points, bluffs, creek channels can all be identified on a lake map and you can then use your waypoints to note areas you might want to check out and try to fish. It is not the perfect solution all the time but I’ve found for me having a list of areas I want to fish for bass all noted on my C Map keeps me from losing confidence halfway through the day if I’m not catching fish or if, as winter fishing can be, it’s kind of slow.

I can honestly say the first 5 casts with my fishing rod this morning cost me $3000. I made a horrible mistake out fishing the lake after I caught a bass on a jig, I nearly broke down in tears. I guess this is why I should go bank fishing!!!! We try to run through some less talked about patterns for fall fishing and fall bass location as well as what fishing lures and soft plastic worms and baits are the best for catching more fish this time of year.

On our fishing road trip we’re trying all different fishing lures to catch bass on these ultra clear water lakes. One way you can do that is use super tiny baits that are supposed to catch fish like crappie and bluegill. But with the clear water and pressured fish it can be the perfect solution to getting fish to eat in finesse situations – just don’t do it this way #FAIL. We also talk fishing techniques and what color fishing tubes to use for bass fishing and other rigs that will catch fish in summer and fall. We put our Battle Born Batteries to the test as well. Our bass boat lead cranking battery died and at the end of the day we had to jump our boat using our lithium batteries (that’s after having fished for 10 hrs)!!!! Saved the day and got us back to the boat ramp to fish again!

Chatterbaits catch bass – so how do you make the perfect custom chatterbait? In this vid I show you how to build a chatterbait with just a couple tackle components from Tackle Warehouse. The D&M Custom Baits Pirahna is the first bladed swim jig I fished and it has a slightly different movement and vibration than a Z Man Evergreen or Jackhammer. If you’re fishing a lake that gets a lot of blade bait pressure, this is a diy build you need to try fishing.

How to fish a chatterbait? I use a 7’2″ MH Kryptonite fishing rod http://bit.ly/2YXZnKs and a 7:2:1 fishing reel. Depending on cover I’ll fish it on 40-50lbs braided fishing line or 18lbs flourocarbon http://bit.ly/2YjSLXd

Some of the best fishing lures for catching bass are right in front of our faces but nobody seems to recognize them. This happens a lot when anglers don’t think to look at artificial lures designed for other species of fish like crappies and bluegill and even walleye. One of the best lures for fishing ultra clear lakes that have grass and rock is a fishing technique I learned from fellow YouTuber Benjamin Nowak -it’s basically throwing a marabou style hair jig and swimming it just like you fish a swimjig but more along the line of slow rolling it.

Whether you call them crawfish or crayfish bass love to to eat. Some of the best baits and fishing lures mimic these creatures and their darting action across rocks and sandy bottoms. On our road trip we fished Green Lake which is a renowned smallmouth fishery that also has some great laregmouth bass as well. One of the central baits that fish eat in this ultra clear lake is crawfish so along with trying to figure out a fishing pattern that works we play around with various fishing lures that imitate crawfish, what fishing rods, line etc to fish them on as well.
