Wow, while things change, some still stay the same. Of course the fish had not moved from this popular winter home but the way we caught them sure had. While we used a aggressive lift and drop with a jigging spoon that fall, this time around we caught all our bass dead sticking a Berkley four inch power minnow on a 3/8 ounce jig. Darrin said the key was let the jig go to the bottom, then reel up half a turn and hold the bait steady. Sure enough, he had the first five bass doing exactly that. The rest of the day pretty much evened out on the fish catching but I found it ironic that the approach to catching this fish should be so dramatically different.
While we were fishing in the springtime, the pattern was pretty much the same, bass holding in fairly tight schools along the breakline in twenty feet of water.
