Hawk's Clash says:

i need some help I’m a new commer to bass fishing I started at the start of summer and well been fishing alot since but I’ve never experienced cold weather bass fishing and from the summer I got that they are under cover up shallow hiding from the sun and I would think that they would also be shallow getting sun though in the cold basically sun bathing is that not the case

You wanna know what my cold water tactic is? When the water is cold, I stay home until it’s time for ice fishing. I don’t have a boat and never caught a damn thing in late fall except for the rare crappie hanging around shallow water.

Killing the croc game. Are they ugly? Hell yes. Are they perfect for slayin’ big boys? DAMN STRAIGHT.
