Fishing can be a bit overwhelming especially trying to catch fish on new lake! That’s why in this video I go back to the basics of bass fishing and simplify my fishing techniques, the cover and structure, and the locations on the lake I look for bass. Sometimes it is that simple to catch fish – they’re fish right!?!?! On Lake Guntersville key winter fishing areas are marinas, rocks and bridges. Fish pass through these locations during seasonal movements in to creeks to spawn in spring and often times use these areas to stage going back and forth. I love fishing an a rig and crankbaits as well as single swimbaits which are all perfect lures to use when approaching these types of fishing situations. If you find yourself struggling to catch bass during these winter periods simplify and get back tot he basics of fishing – think about forage, seasonal movements for winter fishing and spring fishing, some of the fishing techniques you like to use and the cover you like to fish and get out to the lake and make it happen!

I got the most insane sight fishing bite fishing for bass in a tiny clear creek on Lake Lanier. It was unbelievable!!! Reeling in a Nichols Ned Rig Jig with a Gambler Ace I had two bass follow the bait all the way to the boat. I flipped the bait back out while looking at the fish and it bit!!! Absolutely insane!!! Probably the best sight fishing bites I have ever had. We caught some other spotted bass on a range of techniques from throwing Sebile swimbaits to casting micro swimbaits on ball jig heads. Lake Lanier is super clear and the creeks were no exceptions so using light line and more finesse fishing techniques was key.
