This is why during winters there is a very little bite.

Another thing to be noted here is that smallmouth bass pound is one of the scrappiest in case of all fresh water bass. These are found in a rocky stream or a lake environment that has a lot of the crayfish, which is its favorite food. The best time for lake fishing is the month of June and the spawning season, besides early fall. During early morning or even late evening, there can be the natural lure to be used. This would include hellgrammites, besides dragonfly larvae as well as crayfish. The artificial lures can be used on the surface. The ideal way here is to use light tackle. Fishing must be done quietly. The casting must be towards the rocks or logs. The rod tip must be kept up, and the line should be kept tight. The colors to be used for the lures will vary based on the bass fish which has to be caught.
