What is the number one winter bass fishing tip everybody can use?

There is no ONE tip that will help you catch winter bass, but here are some of the main ones.

1. Expect bass to be holding in 10′-15′ of water, near structure.
2. Your retrieve must be so slow that you can hardly stand it. And placement must be virtually on top of the bass. Slow jigging is very effective at this time of year.
3. Your baits must be small, and drab colored. Small soft plastic baits are great, especially ‘Do-Nothing’ type worms. The key is Keep It Small and Slow (KISS). This applies to all winter fishing.

Black Bass fishing in winter can be tough if you don’t keep 4 things in mind:

Bass will be deeper than in warmer months.
Fish slower with more subtle movements.
Winter can bring major low-pressure systems which can cause bass to feed heavily.
Watch your line intently when fishing plastics as the bite will be light.
Happy Fishing.
