Has fishing been tough for everyone? I just bought a boat(96 skeeter ss140 115hp johnson) in December no serious graphs yet(garmin 7sv coming soon) just a little hook on the console. I fish lake worth weekly? Anybody got any hints? My lineups lately consist of jerkbaits, rattletraps and dropshots.

Fishing is tough right now, at least for me. Went today and had water temps from 44-46 degrees. That's cold for Texas and Florida strain bass.

Looks like super cold weather might be behind us and fishing should start picking back up. But it’s still winter and still gonna be somewhat tuff. Could always go to squaw and feel like a pro.

Fishing was good in December, bites have gotten far and few between in the past 2 weeks for me.

When the water gets to 55-60 they’ll start biting.

My trolling motor is out at the moment so i fished several ponds that are loaded this weekend. Worst weekend i’ve had fishing in a year, on any body of water. Fished one place today where its normally like shooting fish in a barrel and couldn’t catch one drop shotting.

Temperature in ponds has got to be below 40. No wonder you didn't get bit.
