One of the things I’ve been doing the past few winters is fishing with downsized swimbaits.
Even if it’s cold, you’re feeling bad or the water’s hard as a rock in your neighborhood, you can still work to improve your fishing skills.

I’m down on Lake Hartwell getting ready for the upcoming GEICO Bassmaster Classic. It’s one of the most rewarding — and boring — things I’ve done in a while. For the past two days my new rig hasn’t been above idle for more than a total of 30 minutes, and that might be generous. It’s probably closer to 15 minutes.

Winning a cold-weather tournament with lures some anglers may forget.
There’s no standing still in fishing. You either move forward or you slip backwards.
