It's been cold out here in lakes country but the bite remains hot. If you have braved the cold and made your way out chances are you were rewarded with a decent bite. We have been finding fish relating heavily to healthy green weeds. I've been utilizing small tungsten jigs tipped with waxies or eurolarva under a ultra light rod with a steady pounding cadence. When working a tall patch of cabbage remember to drop the jig all the way to the bottom and jig your way out. A lot of times fish that are buried in the weeds will follow you up out of the weeds. This will trigger a strike more times than not as once you get that fish above the weeds he is now out of his cover and protection and is now prone to other predators. He will try to grab that bait and bury himself back down in the cover. If you find a good solid green weed edge chances are you can catch them throughout the day. Otherwise your morning and late afternoon bite windows have been the best bite windows as of late. Hopefully this will help put more Panfish topside on your next outing!
