Bass Fishing Winter Time

This past weekend February 8th and 9th Tennessee had a couple of warm days together. It was just enough to get me away from the computer and out on the lake to do what I enjoy most...FISH... 
Saturday morning, I got up about 7am and saw the weather was going to warm up so I called a buddy and told him that I had found some new lakes close to the house and wanted to see if he would like to go wet a hook. 

Picked him up at 10:30am and we were at the lake fishing by 11:00am. One thing I noticed when we arrived; the wind was blowing 10 to 15 miles per hour and was coming in from the west. 

I know everyone has heard the old saying "wind from the west fishing is the best; wind from the east fishing is least". Well, I am hear to tell you it is true. 

We parted and took off in different directions. He went one way and I went to where the wind was blowing into the bank. I Just knew that there had to be fish there. I am a firm believer that the wind blows food up in the shallow for the Bass to eat.

I decided on this one due to the sun and I knew it would give off some flash. The second cast produced a small buck and then the next two or three provided some better fish. The fish started getting bigger and all were coming out of one spot that I was throwing to in the lake. There seemed to be some structure that I could not see other than one little stick that was above the water, so I concentrated all my cast to that one spot. 

About thirty minutes of me catching these fish, my buddy was seeing that I was catching fish every other cast so he started making his way to me. About then, I had this hog blow up on my Lipless crankbait and I missed him. 

I yelled out he better hurry or I was going to catch this hog. My buddy was making his way toward me as fast as possible, but I just had to throw back in there one more time. That was all it took; the hog hit it and the fight was on. I was not sure at first if this was the same fish until it came to the surface and then I realized this was indeed a hog.
