Do swim jigs work in winter?
Swimming a jig through grass is a good alternative to many of the traditional winter approaches to bass fishing. It works. I’ve caught them in water as cold as 39 degrees.
What color jig is best for winter?
Present the jig properly
Hackney throws black and blue jigs almost exclusively during winter because, “it’s a confidence thing, and I think dark colors work best when the fish are slowed down by the weather.”
What color jig is best used in cold weather for crappie?
Try jigs in orange, chartreuse, yellow and white. They will be highly visible to the crappies and are more likely to draw them in. At this depth, light colors reflect light fairly well, and the lighter the color, the more light it will reflect.
