Big Bob's fishing report: Jan. 3, 2018

Bob Stickles

This cold spell will have an effect on both bass and crappie. Bass will be deeper than they have been, and jigs and the Bama rig should both work well. Look for bass on both the main lake and in the first third of major creeks, like Pine Branch. The Rock Crawler crank bait that has been working so well may still bring a few bass to the boat. Crappie will probably be a little deeper than they have been. Look for standing timber and use live minnows, chrome-head jigs or small jerkbaits for best results. 

We will be having several sales in the coming weeks as soon as my ads are finished. We are loaded with product, and all will be priced to sell.

To all my customers and friends I want to wish you a happy and prosperous new year.
