Fishing as the snow falls

With the blizzard we are currently experiencing, I thought I’d discuss the approach necessary to fish in cold, snowy conditions such as these. When it is as cold as it is outside right now, fish get sluggish. Fishing lures really fast is not a good way to get bit during conditions like this. Methods such as live bait or slow-moving lures is your best bet. Another concept to think about is the size of your bait. Fish want a big, slow-moving meal during cold conditions, so present a larger offering than you normally would. Fish can be caught in the cold.IMG_0982


This sauger was caught in snowy conditions on a fairly large crankbait. Fishing isn’t the best in snow, but it is doable.
