Cold water hits
Cold water Smallmouth bass fishing- When water temperatures drop below 38° smallies are usually lethargic, holding deep in their favorite wintering holes and always challenging to catch. Unless you have the right rod setup, baits and correct presentation the bite can often be non-existent. If it wasn’t for Fitt products I would have given up on this challenging but exciting period of smallmouth fishing. Kenny and Stan are very passionate about bass fishing and this passion is reflected in the quality of baits he produces and the exceptional customer support they offer. Fitt has a specific line of products that targets Smallmouth Bass in a wide range of water conditions and temperatures. During the cold water period I have had incredible results using the “3.25 Predator Craw”, “Undulator”, “Chillee Willee” jigs. In extremely cold waters my go to jigs are “Baby Predator Craw”, “Willie Wanabee” and “; Cold Water Hare's Delight”.
Thanks to your excellent variety of cold water choices, I no longer get hung up on a specific bait, after 30 minutes of not catching fish it’s time to switch. I’ve started out hammering bass on a “Baby Predator Craw” only to have them shutdown after an hour of fishing. Sometimes switching to a larger jig like a “3.25 Predator Craw” or “;Chillee Willee” is all it takes to turn the Smallies back on. On other occasions switching to a smaller “Willie Wanabee” or “Cold Water Hare’s Delight” does the trick…Smallies can be cantankerous in cold water!
Thanks for producing such high quality baits and taking the time to explain the correct techniques for fishing Smallies under cold water conditions. I just started fishing the river a year ago and thanks to you it’s been an exciting adventure, the winter bite has been awesome!
