How to Find the Best Bass Fishing Spots in the Winter

Brandon Cobb breaks down how he goes to a new lake and begins his search to find the best bass fishing spots in the winter. This was his first day on a new lake, and he starts by walking us through what he looks for on his map and then on his electronics. Then it becomes a matter of fishing the areas relative to the forage on the lake and what can cover the water the most efficiently with the water temperatures. He likes a crankbait when the clarity and mood of the fish allow because he can cover more water faster.


This is video covers how he begins his search. We’ll have more from this shoot on how he expanded his search and areas to find the better bass on the lake.
