Winter time fishing can be a blessing and a curse…. Some days you crush the fish and the next day you do the same thing and can’t get a bite. I had Michael and Kimberly, a new thumper customer do a teaching trip with Ed from Ed’s Guide Service and myself to learn about wintertime fishing. We shot this video to hopefully help some people out! Please add your favorite techniques in the comments! We started off trolling umbrella rigs then went west and tried bait and deadstick. We hit several spots with promising marks but had to move shallow and use the trolling motor to get bites. Hopefully this will help people learn more about deadsticking. Speed is key, use drift socks if going too fast and your trolling motor if going too slow!
