|Take a slower approach when fishing for bass during the winter months. Suspended crank baits, spinner baits, and worms are a good choice. Just fish them slow this time of year. Target deeper areas with underwater cover.
|During the winter months crappie can be caught in the deeper sections of the lake near any deep structure. Look for any structure in the lake and try various depths. Using jigs or minnows is a good choice.
|Bream fishing during the winter months can be slow. Try using redworms at different depths.
|Winter catfish are slow to bite. Try fishing near the bottom with liver, nightcrawlers, or cut bait.
