February Bass Fishing Punching Matts with Jigs
If you can locate grass beds in February then your best bet will be to throw a jig. Heavier jig that penetrate the grass are a great choice to punch through the remaining winter mats. Winter color choices for many anglers are natural colors of brown and green, or, a black, blue and purple combination. Using a jig to punch holes through grass mats to catch the bass that are holding underneath is the object of late winter jig fishing. The reason for this is simple, the remaining vegetation will hold heat and as little as one degree warmer than the water surrounding the cover will attract a bass to the matt.
Give winter grass jigging a try this February and you could land a lunker that was in the grass. Stay warm, dry and be safe.
