  8. Thanks a bunch for this. The weather has been CRAZY this year and I’ve been going nuts as a brand new angler, trying to pick out baits. I fish from the bank and use a thermometer. This will make it a lot easier to at least be in the ballpark! Really, thank you.

  9. Thanks for this. We’ve had CRAZY weather this winter and spring and, as a brand new angler I’ve been going nuts picking lures. Fishing from the bank but using a thermometer.

  10. My question is the whole body of water with same temperature or the temperature varies depending on the depth of the lake as well? When you say winter water temperature is 45 that means is 45 at the bank at 5 feet of water and as well in the middle of the lake at 40 feet of water? Thank you

  11. Just curious what effects bass more ? Temp or Sun angle(seasonal change). Would a bass from Minnesota be actively feeding in the middle winter if you dropped him in AZ? Water temps are similar in opposite seasons.
