My brother and I decided to try our luck fishing in Alabama near Birmingham Saturday. It rained most of the day so we didn't get a lot of pictures. We were just ahead of a cold front and the water was at 55F. Those two things make bass hungry. We planned to find shad schools and vertical jig under them. It was a good plan until the bass drove the shad to the surface and went nuts! It was crazy we were swapping between fishing near the top and jigging down low.

We caught 16 for the day. Not bad at all for bassing in January and our fish official trip of the new year!

Here's one of my biggest for the day. A nice fat one. He took a finesse worm up top when he was smashing a school of panicked threadfins.

My brother took the big fish for the day with this one. It took a Tsunami Shad jig off the bottom.

Some healthy bass Leo. Sounds like a great day of figuring out the bass. This time of year with it being in the single digits outside today with snow flying that sure looks like heaven to me, thanks for sharing it.
