sportsmen fishing2KENTUCKY (1/9/13) – Hello again folks! I hope you are having a blessed week. The weather we are having has been a little crazy, ranging from warm to cold, and back to warm again. A lot of people will only fish during the warmer months of the year. The truth of the matter is that fish have to eat year-round.
It’s a little more exciting to see that big summer bass jump out of the water, shaking his head. Some of the bigger fish caught have been taken during the cooler temps. As fishermen, we have to change tactics during the cooler weather due to the fish not being so aggressive.
To catch a fish in the winter months, we have to drop the bait right in front of them slowly, as we retrieve it. The bite will be less aggressive as well. You will be reeling your bait and feel a slight tug, as if you were hung up on some debris. That is when you want to set the hook. So many people miss fish in the cooler weather, as they are not used to the fish being not so aggressive.
In the winter months, there are several awesome days to fish. The key is to watch the weather and find the days in which the temps will be warmer for a two-three day period. Personally, I try to catch some of those 50 degree days and take a white 2-inch curl tail grub by simply flipping and easing it in by raising my rod tip up and down, and retrieving slowly.
Well folks, I hope you can land a big one in the next couple of months.
I also want to share with our readers that Sportsmen for Christ Ministry and Groves Country Crafts of Nortonville, KY have teamed up for a fundraiser/giveaway. Groves has built a custom set of cornhole boards with a KY UK Wildcat wearing a coal mining hard hat and packing a pick and shovel. The chances are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. You can stop nby the story on HWY 62 in Nortonville, next to City Sand and Gravel, or give me a call.
Until next week, be safe and God bless!
