In the bass fishing community, there are lots of "standards" for temperatures when things happen. Bass start moving up when the water reaches this temperature, they go back in the creeks in the Fall when it gets down to this temperature. While these can serve as a general rule of thumb. JT Kenney is here to talk about how water temperature really affects bass. What the water temperature is today is certainly not the only consideration. Learn how important knowing the previous conditions is, and where the temperature is going, compared to other environmental considerations. Temperature or moon phase more important for spawning? Temperature trend vs water salinity in tidal rivers? This hour-long bass fishing instructional seminar video is filled with information on determining the best techniques and locating bass based on water temperature.
