Over the past week or more the Smallmouth Bass fishing has been a real challenge to say the least. Multiple situations have all piled up on us pretty much at once we received a cold front which dropped the water temps which sent the bass into deeper water where they collided with massive amounts of alewives moving into the bay to spawn so more than enough feed for the fish and they have been very inactive. Water temps continue to stay cold and in some cases have dropped quite a bit this has made for the perfect storm for very inactive fish. Each day on the water we are fishing lots of areas and fishing very hard to catch the bass that we are catching but we are catching fish along with some pretty decent size fish being caught. As water temps warm and bait fish thin out the fishing will only improve.
