Winter is the time when many bass fishermen, including the fishing guides, switch to minnows or other live bait. There is no question that when the water gets cold, fishing with live bait can be more productive than using artificial lures.

Let’s face it; a client doesn’t want to pay $500 for a day on the lake and not catch fish. He/she wants to catch a lot of fish. Most of the guides say their clients catch 10-20 bass per day using live bait and only a few bass when using artificial lures.
