Fished last night and this morning in very cold air temps again (20's-low 30s) so stuck to dock/shoreline fishing rather than take the boat out. As has been the case all winter, Drop Shot with the Roboworm Straight Tail 4.5" in Margarita Mutilator produces the most bites and landings of my techniques. The best bass, however, was landed on a Ned Rig with a ZMan Finesse TRD Green Pumpkin 2 3/4" on a 1/10 oz Ned jig head. Reaction baits did not work at all either time out.
Fished from my dock on Lake Tillery Tuesday-Wednesday, both early morning/ sunrise and at night. Air temps in the low-20s. Not sure about water temps, but water was clear with visibility at 4+ ft. Nothing awesome, but did catch 1-2 each time, primarily on drop shot and underspin listed above. Also some luck with deep diving crankbaits (StrikeKing 5XD Sexy Shad) casting out across a river channel.
Caught four bass off of the dock last night, primarily on a drop shot rig (purchased entirely at Omnia Fishing btw). G Loomis NRX+ has incredible sensitivity. Luxury buy to be sure, but worth every penny so far. Truly feel every pebble and stick on retrieve. Shimano Exsence reel is very light yet has no problem landing fish. Best bait was a Roboworm 4.5” Straight Tail Worm in Margarita Mutilator. Did catch one bass on a 3” Strike King 6XD in Sexy Shad. Craziest part was comfortably fishing in a T-Shirt at night in late December!
