Do fish bite when it is cold?
The fish bite really well on some bodies of water in cold weather, and a true trophy is a good possibility when the weather is cold. If we want to take advantage of this opportunity, we just need to adjust our fishing habits a little bit.
Can you fish in 40 degree weather?
Bass in 40 to 50 degree water will still chase easy baits, and can be more easily located compared to warmer winter weather bass. These fish don’t eat as readily however. If your water temps are between 50 and 60 degrees F, then your bass will chase a wider variety of lures and baits.
Do fish go shallow when it’s cold?
In the Spring, Summer, and Fall, most fishermen prefer to fish relatively shallow structures. Fish tend to hold there in warmer parts of the year because the structure provides shelter and easy access to potential food sources. As it gets colder, though, fish tend to migrate in schools to deeper water.
