Great Winter Smallmouth Video

Recommended Posts

As I was watching this video, I was struck by how slow the movements were of these smallmouth. It reminds me to slow down in the winter when I'm fishing. These are large fish that seem

very wary of the bait, or are just in the winter time doldrums. It seems the less movement imparted by the angler, the more the fish respond.

One thing that struck me was the orientation of the jig...when it was sitting there horizontally, the fish ate it...when it went vertical they seemed to lose interest.

Yea, that was interesting. The jig definitely appeared more lifelike in the horizontal position. Sort of proves the old adage about presentation over lure selection.
