Unfortunately for me, 25 years of just dealing with tennis elbow has caught up to me. Trying everything to avoid surgery as it means six to twenty months of rehab and no fishing!  :bash:

My travels and trips will be limited this season. Will be counting on this thread to help me through lol. It's frustrating already and it's only January!  :yike:

I did manage to get things started this afternoon though! Had to lumberjack storm damage all morning but dipped out for three hours and got this dude and one super tiny one  :tup:

What are some good type of general baits or lures that are good for bass this time of year?

Drop shot, shakey heads, Carolina rigs and jigs deep until the water temps tick back up into the high 40's. Then mix in jerkbaits, lipless crankbaits and umbrella rigs.

Their primary transition from deep to shallow is around mid March. Largemouth will seek out wood and rocks  in the five to fifteen foot range for warmth. It only gets better as the water temps climb into the 50's in April through early May. Great time for swim jigs, swimbaits and spinnerbaits. Focus on the full moon phases now until the end of February and don't forget to share your pics please  :tup:
