2 fish I have been wanting to figure out how to catch in the winter, before it warms up and gets easy to catch em. Smallmouth and carp... I know the smallies will be a lot easier. I hear a lot about small jigs, tube jigs, etc. This is creek fishing so current is a factor. What type of structure and/or cover, and current do you fish around and what is your lure of choice for smallmouth in the winter? The carp, I will try and figure that out myself. All I catch is largemouth and the occasional spot. They are great because they are an easy way to keep your line tight when other fish won't bite, but they can get a bit boring after a while and I would prefer smallmouth if I am bass fishing. I might venture to wade one of our creeks here soon if it's warm enough to wear some shorts. thanks for any tips
