Fishing for bass during the late fall and winter months can be a daunting task. During the regular season there is identifiable structure to fish. Vegetation in bloom and shaded areas offered by the sun will produce fish during the heat of the day. Winter, however, does not give you any of those visible signs.
Spring is upon us and my fingers are itching to get bass fishing! Generally bass will begin their annual movement towards the shoreline in preparation for feeding and bedding within the first few weeks following ice out (for those who live in areas where your lakes and ponds freeze over the winter).
