December 14, 2011As winter progresses more of the grass dies off and it`s time to start using a depth finder to locate small patches of grass 10 to 12 feet down. Finding an area like this that the cold water hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t touched yet can produce some great catches. I like to use a big worm and get it to the bottom of these small patches of grass, put it on the bottom and shake it. Be patient and let that big worm create a bite by keeping it in contact with the bottom and shaking it for several minutes at a time. Also fish extremely slow, and when that worm hits bottom don`t pick it up and drop it, just let it sit on the bottom and let the bite come to you. You will find if you get your worm on the bottom and consistently keep it in contact with the bottom structure the winter bite will pretty productive.

December 17, 2011And if your lake is covered in ice you can still use a portable depth finder to locate these areas. Some will even shoot through the ice saving you time drilling holes
December 18, 2011as usual no ice here Bob... however the good news is I drove past a couple of my local fishing holes yesterday, and they are starting to collect water. Still a long ways to go, but, God has actually responded to my christmas wish.
