It seems like we blew right threw fall and into early winter. The surface temps have dropped into the upper 50's and the lake has gotten cold. I have one rule of thumb for this time of year when it comes to bass fishing. When the creek rolls over the fish roll over with it and become bottom feeders. That's when I make the transition to the bottom baits like jigs, cranks and worms. It's that easy for me. Locating the fish isn't as easy as picking the right bait but when I do locate them I can usually figure out a pattern. Here's a few fish from this morning and yesterday morning.
