    This time of year i prefer a lucky craft stacey or pointer,,,,fished slow, real slow. A smithwick rogue is also a good choice. If that doesn't work i go to a jig an pig combo. After the water starts to warm up a little bit i usually go to a wiggle wart crankbait.

    chartuese rat l trap or chartuese double blade spinnerbait.

    in warm water, i don't bass fish in winter. the bite is too slow for me in the wintertime.

    I like a chartruse spinnerbait, rattling jig, and a wide wobble shallow diving crankbait in fire tiger, bone white, or red/crawfish pattern.

    At this time of the year, it's "Nice & Slow" Bass Fishing for me until the water warms-up a bit, and they get in the mood to strat chasing there food. So I'm using a small rattling jig of some kind in a "dark color". After the water gets over 55 degs, I love to use Senkos in a "Lime Green or Watermelon color patten".

    In muddy water i always use a dark color. I havent got to fish yet this year because most of the lakes are to frozen to put a boat in. Im going though when the ice clears. :)

    I prefer soft plastics if the water is real muddy. If it's just stained then about any bright colored crank bait or spinner bait will do. Allen

    Spinnerbait with painted blades all the way. I like Indiana blades. Moves a good bit of water and the feel of the lure is important.

    I would agree with John on this. A blk/blue rattleback jig with a blk pork rind will also work well in muddy water.

    Muddy conditions I lean to a spinner bait with a colorado or indiana blade for the vibration. With crank baits something that displaces alot of water when retrieved. Just my personal believe they need a little more something to key in on when it gets muddy.
