I been itching to get back out here on Norris and see if i can jig up some bass. Cold weather has been keeping me off the lake. Anyone braving the cold? Have any sucess?

I go most every day I can. I prefer December-March fishing over the rest of the year. I have not done much crappie fishing yet, but the bass fishing has been pretty good.

What lakes are you fishing? How deep are you catching them this time of year? Any what baits? Just wondering may go try it sometime.

I mainly fish Cherokee. You can catch bass at all different depths this time of the year. Mainly depends on the tactic you prefer to use. Myself, I catch the majority from 2-10 foot deep and use jigs and crankbaits. Don't let anyone tell you any different or believe everything you read, you can catch them in 44 degree water temps two foot deep on Rattle Traps right now. You won't do that on a gin-clear mountain lake though.

I have fished Dale Hollow 3 times since Thanksgiving, and we were catching alot of smallies in 15-25 feet of water on a 3/4 ounce football head jig. We fished a tourney up there in mid December and came in 4th out of 42 boats using that tactic.

Shorefisherman and I have been doing pretty good on big browns on the Caney, the past 3 days producing fish between 24-27". Also, earlier we were doing well on muskies in the rivers, and I have good reports from the lake. A buddy of mine got a 43" musky that weighed just in at 30 pounds. Fattest fish I've ever seen for its size.
