For most anglers, once fall fishing ends, their boats are pulled inside for the winter, and their rod and reels get a break until the first signs of spring. However, winter fishing can result in larger-than-average bass catches. It only takes the angler paying attention to what bass are doing and figuring out how to lure them out of their winter hiding spots.

Watching in the distance, I noticed several boats travel into the small creek arms to do most of their fishing. It wasn’t long before I heard the bass splash coming out of the water. From where I was standing, I could see a gentleman reeling in a famous Table Rock largemouth bass. As my weekend at the lake continued, my assumption of where the bass could be found was validated.
I often fish the lakes or many rivers near my home in Missouri. During summer, however, I often take advantage of the longer daylight hours to fish in nearby ponds. No matter how often I fish a local pond, it always takes me back to my childhood when I first began fishing with my father and two siblings. These local farm ponds are where I learned to fish, made my first angling memories, and fueled my passion for bass fishing.
