Anyone have any luck? I have this urge to bust out the spin rod and hit up some shore fishing for bass. I suck at bass fishing and I think fishing for them in winter makes it even worse. Anyone have any tips or tricks?

S....L.....O....W.... Thats my tip. Work your bait painfully slow LOL 5 minutes for 1 cast.... or even more if you have the patience.


Good luck!

Any advice on baits to use? Are we talking about Texas rigged crawdads on the bottom with a super slow retrieve? Wacky rigged senko's? What am I putting down there that I am retrieving so slow? Also, where are the fish? Are they on the banks? Are they deep? Where am I casting?

Jerkbaits-if the water is clear, lightly stained. If its not, find some that is.

So, what is a jerkbait exactly? Lightly stained? I am a self taught fisherman here. Nobody around me uses this terminology. Talk to me as if I am a 5-year old.

Catch them through the ice -- that's my advice. Unless you're traveling far South in CO, you're going to have a tough time finding open water bass in January.

They'll attack shiners and any active jig through the ice.

X2. Doesn't get much better than bass through ice. I've had my best day ever bassing in Colorado through the ice.
