Cold Water Bass Fishing - Getting Really Good

Had a chance to get out bass fishing last night with a friend.  Just went to a local pond and fished from shore for a change.  Air temp was down around 35 Degrees...  Burrrrr!  Glad I purchased cold weather gear.  Anyway, we've had a few fronts come through over the last few days and then the air temp dropped and that triggered some of the bigger bass to feed.  No giants, but several bass up to 3 1/2 pounds.  The moon was out last night (almost full) and there was not too many clouds.  We tried small suspending jerkbaits at first, but didn't connect.  It took a small Keitech Fat 2.8" Swing Impact on a 1/8 oz jig head to get these bass going.  Cast it out and start a steady retrieve back to shore.  They were mostly around the last bits of deep weed left in the pond, but the trick was not letting the swimbait make contact with the grass, because it get a little green slim on it and that was enough to mess up the wiggle of these little swimbiats.

If you can brave the cold weather, there is still some great bass fishing going on right now... even at night!
