Bass fishing is good. Any wind will be an angler’s best friend as the water cools down. The fishing pressure has lessened and should continue as Christmas approaches. Now is the time to get out and catch some big Bass. Use Rapala DT6 and DT10 around the wind blown points. Banks are always a good place to start fishing during December. Also check out the rip rap after the sun comes up with Rapala Shad Raps and Rapala DT Flats. Try this with the Lowrance, split the screens and put sonar on one panel and down imaging on the other. This will make the down scan 4 times wider that sonar. Keep a pearl Super fluke rigged all day and work this bait around any schools of bait you find on the Lowrance.

Watch the Fish and Game Forecaster on my site and use the bigger baits when the peaks occur.
