    new to wintertime fishing

    Hey guys, I am new to wintertime fishing. I have just purchased a bass boat after a 15 year absence from fishing. I used to fish the spring. summer, and fall all the time with good luck. I have never winter fished and was wondering what is the best way to go about it. I know this is a loade question because of all the different fishing techniques. I suppose I should be fishing pig and jigs around rip rap and maybe some diving plugs. Also hear that minnow fishing is good for crappie this time of year. Any help???????

    Where do you live? I can put you on some good sauger fishing close to you if you want. I'll even tell you how to catch 'em. Absolutely one of the best eatin' fish on earth.

    RE: new to wintertime fishing

    I would suggest fishing the warm water discharges from the power plants. I catch Bass, Striper, Hybrids, White Bass, Walleye, Drum, heck just about everything at the warm water discharges in the winter. It can be the best fishing of the year. My only advice is to dress extremly warm. A rain suit makes an excellent wind breaker and will really keep you warm. Good luck!

    If you are in the Knoxville area the powerplant in Kingston on Watts Bar is good as well as Bull Run powerplant on the Clinch River in the Oak Ridge area. If you are in the Nashville area, the powerplant on Old Hickory Lake in Gallatin is good. Good luck!

    If there is any powerplants near you with warm water discharge they are usually loaded with fish.A 1/4 jig with a curley tail usually works fine. Be safe in the cold weather while boating
