Today we hit the water with spinning rods in hand, searching for cold water bass in Post Frontal conditions. We’re out with Ross England, an excellent finesse fisherman and fishing guide. Despite the weather, we started catching fish immediately and had consistent action throughout the day.

If you’re tired of struggling to catch bass in Winter, this video is for you. The drop shot isn’t glamorous but its incredibly effective throughout the cold months. If you understand where to look for bass and how to work the baits, its only a matter of time before you start catching.

We used 4 different worms today and caught fish on all of them. The key was that we found bass that were grouped together. Its always easier to get bit when there is competition between fish. Whether its December with a dropshot or July with a topwater, grouped up fish compete for food.

Below is a break down of the baits, the gear, as well as Ross’s contact information if you’d like to get out and do this style of fishing. Winter doesn’t have to be a struggle, get out there and have some fun!
