Catching bass with a pork and jig combo
During this time of year, there are many ways to catch bass. But there is one pattern that I use to catch the big bass.
This pattern is fishing bpat docks witha jig and pork combo.
Boat docks are man-made structures that attact big bass and concentrations of bass during the winter months.
But all docks are not created equal. There are differences and some are better than others.
Older boat docks located along bluff-type banks, steep shorelines, or those adjacent to deep water are the best of all docks. These older docks in those areas seem to attract more bass because they have more algae build up.
The aquatic plant build-up is one of the links in the food chain, and its presence around docks will attract small bait fish and blue-gill. Also, an older dock has more sunken brush piles, wood, rock, etc. beneath it.
For fishing those boat docks in these areas, I use a 1/2 ounce rattle jig witha pork trailer in three colors: black-blue jig, and a black-blue pork trailer, and a black-brown jig with a brown pork trailer.
The jig and pork combos are always sprayed down with Jack's Juice Crawfish attractant, and the combo is fished on 15-pound to 25-pound Trilene big game fishing line.
Follow these guidelines, and look for these docks in these areas and you'll catch fish.
