Elite Series pro Jordan Lee likes to exploit cold-weather pocket bass using a shaky head.

Bassmaster Classic champion Jordan Lee excels at picking off wintertime bass, especially in lakes that have a strong population of spotted bass. He does much of his cold-weather damage by casting a shaky head jig into deep pockets off the main lake.

“Bass in pockets see few lures because most anglers concentrate on points in the winter,” Lee said.
