Bass aren't as aggressive in the winter, but that doesn't mean they don't eat and that you can't catch them. For me, it's a matter of settling on a few lures and following a pretty basic game plan.

The EverStart Series Championship was scheduled for the Ouachita River in West Monroe, La. Having looked at past events there I knew the bite was going to be extremely tough. I left Friday morning and after a quick stop to get my fishing license at the local Walmart I checked into my hotel. The weather was changing drastically when I filled up in Meridian, Miss.
