Cold Water Smallmouth Bass Fishing – Stingnose Jigging Spoon for Chunk Smallmouth

I have everyone’s favourite boatless angler with us today, and we’re out on the water in some nice cold -2 degree Celsius weather. We’re all bundled up in full gear and even have on some nice toques.

It’s the last day of smallmouth bass fishing up here in Canada, specifically in the southern Ontario region.

Today we’re running the brand new Stingnose jigging spoons, and we’re jigging in about 50 feet of water. The water temp is about 47 degrees Fahrenheit. Which means that the smallmouth bass are starting to really school up, and feed in prep for the winter. The Stingnose size we’re running with specifically is 1 3/4 oz. Which is the perfect size for this cold water depth.

If you’d like to get your own Stingnose jigging spoons, you can get them here:

A good tip/trick when it comes to vertically jigging, is the classic jig and pause technique. Many times, the smallmouth bass will hit the lure right on that pause.

It was such a great day out on the water today catching those nice chunky smallmouth bass. We couldn’t be more pleased with these new Stingnose jigging spoons.

It was definitely a great way to end the smallmouth bass fishing season!

As always until next time, good luck and good fishin’!


River Smallmouth Bass Fishing Tips

Smallmouth bass are a very hearty species of fish and are found in almost every type of water that there is, and one of the most enjoyable places to fish for and catch these beautiful fish is in the flowing waters of a river. Smallmouth love the current that rivers provide, as the current of a river creates many seams and places to hide to ambush their prey. One of the most effective ways to fish for smallmouth bass in a river is by wading in the water that you are fishing, in much the same way that a fly fisherman wades and fishes for trout.

In this article I will outline a few river smallmouth bass fishing tips that will help you to be more successful the next time that you head out to your local river in search of "bronze backs". If you have never had the pleasure of hooking and fighting a smallmouth (especially if the smallmouth weighs two or more pounds) when the fish has the current of a river to use to it's advantage over the fight, you are missing out on an experience that will not soon be forgotten.

One of the best ways to fool an aggressive smallmouth bass is by using a top water plug, such as a Jitterbug or Zara Spook. Many anglers tend to think that top water plugs are not a good lure choice when they are wading in a river, but nothing could be farther from the truth. On a calm day, working a top water plug, such as those mentioned above, across a deep hole or slow moving bend in the river can be an incredibly effective technique.

The next tip involves a technique that is known as drift fishing . Drift fishing is a technique that was originally developed by salmon and steelhead fishermen, and a downsized version is used by trout fishermen all over the country. Smallmouth bass fishermen can also utilize this technique by using as a way to fish live bait. Live worms and minnows are both very effective when used as bait for smallmouth bass and drift fishing is the technique to use when river fishing for smallmouth bass with either of these types of live bait. A hungry smallmouth almost always finds a live worm or minnow "drifting" with the current all but impossible to resist.

The river fishing tip for smallmouth bass has to do with when you are on the water fishing. Many anglers make the mistake of thinking that the best time to be fishing is "anytime that you can", and while this may be a true statement emotionally, the truth of the matter is that certain times of the day, week, and month are more productive than others when it comes to fishing. Factors such as the weather, the moon, and the temperature all play major roles in when of not the fish that we are trying to catch are going to be "active" or not. As a smallmouth angler you want to be on the water fishing when the bass are the most "active" (which means the most likely to be feeding) so this means that you need to understand the ways in which these factors have an impact of the fishes behavior.

If you want to catch more smallmouth bass, especially when you are wading in a river, add one or all of these fishing tips to your fishing arsenal sooner rather than later.

Smallmouth bass are one of the most aggressive species of game fish and that aggression increases even more in the fall. Smallmouth are actively roaming and feeding as water temperatures fall down into the 50s, so reaction baits like a jerkbait, spinnerbait, or Donkey Rig excel. Smallmouth, along with other bass species, usually group up in the fall, so look to cover a lot of water until you find a school. Once you’ve located a group of fish, work moving baits across the area with different retrieves to trigger aggressive strikes.

Bass Fishing Tips – Best Bass Lures

This article will outline some of the most effective bass fishing lures available to fishermen. Are these the only options available? Of course not, but they are some of the best bass lures on the market as far as effectiveness is concerned. All of these bass lures are in my tackle bag and get used heavily in various bass fishing situations.

In various situations is a key phrase when it comes to bass fishing lures and tips. There aren’t bass lures that are the “be all end all” and will be effective in every situation. There are however bass lures that work very well in certain situations. The same rule goes for bass fishing tips. One tip isn’t going to make you catch bass like a professional, but good tips implemented in your own way can be extremely helpful.

The bass lures listed below are very effective, and any one of them could become your “best” for given fishing situations. The lures are being listed in no particular order.

  1. Shad Imitations – In many fishing hotspots shad are the main food source and shad imitations can be very effective bass lures. The key with shad imitations is that they look as natural as possible. That means that your lure looks as much like a live shad as possible. You can then imitate a wounded shad by jerking your rod tip and varying the speed of the retrieve. Shad Imitations are a great bass bait.
  2. Berkley Sinking Minnows – Berkley sinking minnows could easily be considered one of the best bass lures simply because of their versatility. These bass baits can be fished on a Texas rig or wacky style. Plus these baits are a “Gulp” product which means they’ve been impregnated with bass catching scents, which makes them much more effective than traditional soft plastics. Sinking minnows are great in certain bass fishing situations.
  3. Jointed Jitterbugs – Every bass angler worth his or her salt knows how effective top water fishing can be in the early mornings when the water is like glass. Well, jointed jitterbugs are an extremely effective top water bass fishing lure. When it comes to bass fishing tips, fishing jointed Jitterbugs in the early morning is a great one. This is especially true in lakes and ponds with a healthy frog population. The traditional Jitterbug has long been recognized as one of the best bass lures available and the jointed Jitterbug is no different.

Again, these aren’t the only choices available when it comes to fishing lures; they are just some of the most effective. I have all of them available to me for various bass fishing situations. For given bass fishing situations these bass lures are undoubtedly the best. Having one or all of them available is a good idea for anyone who is serious about fishing for bass.

Smallmouth Bass

As residents of Grayson County, we are fortunate to have one of the most unique fisheries in the state of Texas in our own backyard. The body of water that I am referring to of course is Lake Texoma. What sets this lake apart from other Lone Star lakes is the abundance of smallmouth bass living in its water.

When people talk about fishing in Texas, visions of shallow, stump filled reservoirs with ten plus pound largemouth come to mind. However, Lake Texoma offers anglers the chance to catch what many consider to be hardest fighting fish in freshwater.

So what makes this species of bass so interesting? Smallmouth bass are indigenous to the Eastern United States and Canada and prefer a cool, rocky and clear water environment. The Texas heat will not allow smallmouth to survive in the numerous ponds and stock tanks that most of us fished as children. Therefore, most Texans have never had the opportunity to hook into one of these brown bass. Plus, a two pound smallmouth will pull as hard as a five pound largemouth, and I promise that I’ve hooked into one that leaped five feet out of the water.

In the years of 1981-1987 Texas Parks and Wildlife stocked smallmouth bass fry and fingerlings into Lake Texoma. Because of its deep, cool water and miles of rocky shoreline, smallmouth bass have thrived. Since this time, there have been several trophy smallies taken from its water.

So what makes a trophy smallmouth? Unlike their largemouth cousin, smallmouth bass typically do not reach the same size. While the ten pound mark signifies a trophy largemouth, a six pound smallie is considered a prize. Lake Texoma offers anglers an exclusive chance at one of these treasures. Plus, three, four and five pound smallmouth are becoming common.

The two lake records came within the last decade. The Oklahoma record, 7.80 pounds, was caught by Aaron Fidrich on March 22, 2003. The fish was taken on crank-bait in the mid-lake region of Texoma. The Texas record, 7.06 pounds, was caught by Jay Fuller on January 29, 2006. According to the Texas Parks and Wildlife report this smallmouth was caught with a jig in 20 feet of water on the bluff banks outside of Eisenhower Marina.

Winter and early spring seem to be the best times to target trophy smallmouth on Lake Texoma. Because they spawn in cooler water than largemouth, the colder months are preferred by smallmouth enthusiasts. Prime areas include the lower end of the lake around Eisenhower State Park and Ross Perot’s property. Butterfly Cove features some of the deepest water in the lake and is also an excellent location. On the Oklahoma side, the rocky banks from Washita Point to Caney Creek offer great smallmouth habitat.

Jigging spoons and bass jigs fished around boulders and bluff-wall drop-offs are best utilized in the winter. As spring arrives and the smallmouth move up to spawn, one of the best techniques is swimming a weightless Zoom Super Fluke in and around the shoreline rock and gravel.

Though January through March is best for trophy smallies, one of the most consistent patterns on the lake occurs in the summer time. As the sunsets and night falls, the crawfish come out from under their shallow-water rocks and the smallmouth follow. A black and blue jig or a black spinner-bait worked along the bank will produce some vicious strikes. If you think smallies jump high in the day time, their night-time leaps can be almost frightening. Lake Texoma has few under-water obstructions so navigation at night is easier than on most lakes.

Though there are a few other lakes in our state that contain smallmouth bass, Lake Texoma might just offer the best chance in catching one. The excellent habitat and forage base of crawfish and shad allow for a large population of these fish to be sustained.

Power Fishing Tubes (Stroking) for Big Smallmouth Bass

There are a variety crayfish imitation baits out there but it’s hard to beat a tube rigged on a heavy jig head. Wired2Fish’s Kyle Peterson demonstrates how to fish a tube on a jighead by “stroking” and bouncing the bait off the bottom. The head falls fast, causing the tube to flair and mimic a backward-scurrying crayfish. Moving the bait quickly triggers reaction strikes from tentative fish. This technique shines in windy conditions, and in shallow and deep water alike.

How To "Drift Fish" for Trout, Smallmouth Bass, Etc

When I began my fishing career (if you can call my fishing escapades a "career") I had the pleasure of being taught a specific angling technique by a man who was renounced through the area where I grew up as being a fishing "master" of sorts. This man was able to catch trophy sized trout and smallmouth bass from heavily fished rivers in Central Pennsylvania using a technique that he called "drift fishing".

In the past 25 or so years since I was first taught how to drift fish by this man I have learned that the technique has been being used by salmon and steelhead fishermen for many years, it's simply that this man used a downsized version of "drift fishing "as his technique of choice in the rivers and streams of Pennsylvania.

Below I will outline how to drift fish as it was taught to me all those years ago, so that you can add the technique to your fishing repertoire and begin catching more fish. If you are going to drift fish successfully the technique begins and ends with your rod, reel, and fishing line, all of which need to be as light as possible . Simply stated, this means that an ultra light rod and reel, that is spooled with 2, 4, or 6 pound test should be used anytime that you are trying to drift fish.

In order to drift fish successfully you are going to need to be fishing in the flowing water of a river or stream. I prefer the kind of river where wading is necessary and that can be waded across in various places. Obviously this type of fishing involves letting your bait or lure "drift" with the current and wading allows you to position yourself within the river or stream for to achieve the perfect drift.

You want to position yourself slightly upstream of the area that you want to fish and you want to make want to make casts parallel (to slightly upstream) of where you are standing. After a cast is made, the bail of your reel is closed, and let your bait, lure, or fly oi allowed to drift naturally with the current. A key to success is keeping your line as taught as possible while the drift is taking place. A sinker of some sort (usually split shot or tape lead) is added to the line twelve to twenty four inches above the bait or lure to achieve the optimum depth during the drift. Experimentation is key here, as the amount of weight will vary depending on water depth, current flow, etc. During most times of the year the goal is to keep your offering as close to the bottom as possible while the drift is taking place.

This ultralight spin fishing technique can be accomplished while using live bait such as worms, grubs or minnows, plastic baits such as Power worms or minnows, jigs, spinners, and even artificial flies (streamers). With practice you will begin to understand the nuances of how to drift fish and it will more than likely become your "go to" fishing technique.
