Bait selection for winter bass fishing is a tricky task that sometimes causes anglers to limit their lure arsenal to just a handful of bottom bouncing baits. Tried and true bottom baits like a jig and shaky head do work, but there are some unique winter baits that can be equally effective. A jointed swimbait like the Strike Pro Glider, for example, has a totally different look then most baits that bass are seeing this time of year. These uncommon lure presentations will often peak the curiosity of lethargic winter bass and trigger big bites.

Found a pond in a few videos ago that had smallmouth bass in it. I was eager to go back and try my fishing luck again at catching some pond small jaws.
The first two fish of the day that I landed were caught on a 1/4 red eye shad lipless crankbait. After that I threw a jerkbait and caught the biggest fish of the night. Overall had a fun night fishing urban local ponds for bass in December.

In spring, smallmouth bass move up onto shallow rock and sand flats, initially to feed, and eventually to spawn. Establish their preferred depth, along with the proper lure style and retrieve to match their prevailing mood.
The editors at Wired2Fish have worked with a huge swath of the nation’s best bass fisherman, and one lure they always seem to have rigged up is a big walking topwater. The reason for this is simple – they consistently catch big bass everywhere they swim, be it shallow or mid-depth, largemouth or smallmouth. The trick is knowing when to upsize and how to work the lure given the conditions and species. Brandon Palaniuk present 5 tips that will help you get the most of walking baits whenever bass on eating on top.
