Winter bass fishing can be tough. But with side-scan, a blade bait, and some hand warmers, you’ll be bagging smallies in no time! Pick yourself up a 3/8 oz Damiki Vault. For some reason gold works best. Launch anywhere on the Spokane River Arm, and just use your sidescan to find rock piles in water that is between 20’-50’. Each of these rock piles will most likely contain multiple nice smallmouth. Just drop the Damiki Vault straight down when you are over the rock pile and jig it up and down off of the bottom. Allow it to sit for 5-8 seconds, and then pull it up just enough to feel a couple flutters of the lure. Slowly lower it back down and give it a few seconds. The bite feels like a wet rag on the end of your line. It isn’t a hard thump, more of a soft mushy bite. Set the hook and you are in business. Good luck! This technique works anytime from December through April. 👍🏼
With everything being hot my favorite way to catch these summer time small mouth is the wacky rig. On long Lake (spokane river) there are multiple grass lines that drop between 19-23 feet. weightless wacky rig drive these fish crazy!
