Do fish bite in the Winter? Yes.

Don’t let the Winter Blues get the best of you. Fish will bite in the Winter. Don’t be fooled into thinking otherwise. Fish bite good in the Winter. Often you just have to slow down the presentation and show it to them right. Chad and Dad catch more fish in the Winter than Summer.

Crappie are coldwater biting fish.
Bluegill are coldwater biting fish.
Sauger are coldwater biting fish.
Musky are coldwater biting fish.
Bass are coldwater biting fish.
Catfish are coldwater biting fish.

Fish can be active and will strike hard especially in clear, cold water conditions. Sometimes the secret to catching fish is to “slow down” the presentation almost to a “standstill”…and then just quiver the bait slightly to trigger strikes. Tiny jigs and floaters, jerk-baits, live minnows, work well.

Don’t forget farmponds or small lakes. I think of small-water on rainy week-ends like this week-end. Ohio River Sauger might be out of the question if it gets muddy or the River rises to high. Perhaps Crappie at East Fork? Perhaps Musky at East Fork.  Chad caught a nice 37”  Musky last year this time at East Fork. Perhaps Blue-gill in small ponds? Rain will be here until Tuesday.

Chad and Dad love farm-ponds in the Winter. Crappie or Bluegill on the ultra-lights. Tubes, Jig and floater.

Mother Nature and Old Man Winter have been working together this week. Rain but 40-50 degrees. Still good fishing weather! The River is 46 degrees. EastFork Lake is 50 degrees. Farm ponds are probably 40 degrees. Fish will bite in the Winter! Try it! You may like it!

Don’t forget about the Good Lord! Enjoy life. Thanks for stopping by.

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
