OK guys, the ice is slowly fading away here in western Indiana. What in your opinion is the best bait(s) to use when going after big ice out largemouth bass in the coldest of waters? I'll probably go with the jig and pig for a while to try and entice those lethargic bucketmouths into biting. My favorite, and most successful, is a 1/4 oz. blue/black jig with a blue/black or blue pork chunk. Make a longer cut in the split tail, all the way to the pork body, to give it a more lively swimming action. Work it very slow this time of year. This bait is a great bait all year long, don't overlook it during the hot summer months fished deep. Some of the biggest bass of the year will be caught in March and April. Good luck out there!!! Let's go fishin'!!!
