February 2016

Even though the river is still high and muddy with strong current bass can still be caught if your willing to go out on the river.

With the water temperature still hovering in the 40ís and 50ís most of the bass will be on the deeper drop offs or outside bends of the oxbows. The magic depths seem to be 6 feet to the bank. This all depends on the weather and air temperature.

A Crawfish or Black Blue pattern 9/16oz. Southpaw Jig and pig combo or Texas rigged dark colored creature baits rigged with a 1/4oz Tungsten weight and 17lb Vicious fluorocarbon should be the tackle of choice. Fish these baits slowly around the edge of the drop offs in the timber. If there is a warming trend move up shallow to the 5 foot areas near the deeper water.
