Cold Season Smallmouth Fishing - Seth Feider

Cold Season Smallmouth Fishing - Seth Feider

Tournament bass fishing champion Seth Feider has proven his ability to catch big smallmouth on the Bassmaster Elite Series tournament trail. In this bass fishing instructional video, Seth Feider will discuss catching smallmouth in cold water. September and October are Seth's favorite times to fish for smallmouth bass. In this video, he will discuss what makes the fall a magical time for catching big smallmouth. For the sake of "cold water" definition in this video, Seth is talking about water temperatures 60 degrees (15.5 c) or below in the fall, or 50 degrees (10 c) or below in the spring.

Feider shares many of his favorite smallmouth bass baits and how to fish them for each stage of the season, early fall (including Seth's go-to tough bite bait Poor Boy's Erie Darter), late fall (including tightlining finesse swimbaits and jigging blade baits), winter (including the Rapala Jiggin Rap Ice Jig). Using Minnesota's Mille Lacs as an example, Seth shows topographical map examples of areas that will hold fish, and talks about the key elements to look for finding cold water smallmouth bass.

To everyone at Bass University, Thank you guys for all that you do! I signed up for a yearly subscription last year and learned so much from all of the seminars. It was so convenient to find seminars on every topic all in one place. Without Bass University I was always searching the internet to find out new tips and techniques but this really simplified things. I really appreciate you bringing this wealth of knowledge to us anglers so thanks again!
