ummm depending on the water if its oer 40 degrees i would go there--tubes-jigs-shakeyheads are a few go to winter baits depending on where the fish are holding at, senko's are a good search bait to find the depth the fish are at

:D

I'd hold off awhile yet for lm bass fishing in the mid valley, especially in ponds. When the water temps hit the mid-50's it's a good time to catch a big pre-spawn female. It's often mid to late March in the Salem area, weather permitting.... Cold, wet weather screws it up, several days of warm sunny weather turns the bass on.

I like reaction baits for pre-spawn, spinnerbaits or a T-rigged plastic worm. They usually take the bait as soon as it hits the water or within the first few cranks of the reel.

They do. They're not good ponds for numbers of bass (the bite is usually very slow), but they hold some big ones.

Have You Kissed a Bass Today???
i was wondering what would be good lures or jigs for bass or should i go with bait....i have never bass fished but this is my year to get one....


In the Spring i've caught (c&r) bass using Rapala or Rebel diving & shallow diving lures with features like a baby bass, perch, bluegill, trout, shad, etc.

Good Luck BRO.

:D:D:D

Temperature would definitely play a role in bass fishing. I would get out on the lake or river anyway, because a bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.:D

Also, If you have a kayak or a canoe, you can try this cool technique:

Cool Technique For Catching Bass

It's a video, Enjoy.
