With water temperatures finally taking a plunge ,the bass in northern Michigan are starting to go into their pre-winter binge!!
What generally gets them going in my experience is day two after the first below freezing night
It seems they need 48 hours to acclimate to the drop in temperature and realize that soon their activity level will diminish greatly due to the impending winter and the accompanying free fall in temps
Main lake points
Especially those that have shallower gravel and rock in close proximity seem to be the key though they will they will chase bait fish suspending in deeper water as well
Some of those same points and turns they use in pre-Spawn are good places to look
Great time to stare at your electronics!!
Minnow shaped soft plastics on ball heads are working now as well as drop shots as it gets colder hair flies will come into play...
Dress warm and be safe !!
