In a couple of the pictures you can see the bait hanging outside the bass's mouth. Looks like swimbaits to me :D

if you have a kick butt private pond i would tie that on :lol::lol:, if not then go super slow with jigs, and other slow moving baits soft baits will work occasionally also just go SLOOOOW

Gotcha, thanks Colby. I get to fish a private lake sometimes, maybe I can talk my buddy into letting us fish when I convince him with this thread!! I knew that bass bit well into the fall, but I never knew they could be fished with such success in the dead of winter!

i told FP when we he got here yesterday "i sure hope we don't get skunked" 5 minutes on the boat and he'd already caught one lol good job yesterday. my excuse for not catching anything was that i was in the back of the boat, so i was getting the water that'd been fished twice already by the time i would cast :)

I caught mine off Jigs and a senk, FP just killed them with hiw swimbait. Thanks again TR, next time you need to drive the boat backwards so you get the first dibs :D

That could be arranged some time providing you can play by a few rules . I am out of town for a couple more weeks workin hoping to be back here fishing often by feb 1 will drop you a PM when I get back and set up a fishin day.
