When water temperatures begin to dip into the low 50’s or even lower fishing can get tougher. Sometimes you have to downsize and other times you have to slow down. Fish will suspend, are situational feeders and many times presentation is a key. Bait selection is also critical and Strike King Lure Company and their elite pro staff have designed baits for every situation and every water temperature.
Umbrella Rigs call for Shadalicious, cold fronts mean flipping Hack Attack jigs tipped with creature plastics like the Rodent. The Slither Rig is perfect for punching heavy cover. The KVD Jerkbait and 1.0, 1.5 and 2.5 KVD Squarebills are also good choices for cold water too. Red Eye Shads and the 3XD can be effective too. Each lakes water color, water temp and type of forage can determine what bait works best.
Strike King and Wired2Fish just completed a killer cold water giveaway with all of the aforementioned in the line-up. They are packaged and ready to hit the water. Thanks to everyone who entered. Congrats to all the winners!
