In this video I’m trout fishing with three different baits looking to find which bait works the best. I am trying Powerbait Trout Bait, Power Eggs, & Gulp Trout Nuggets.

Finding some nice warm water in the winter can determine if you are going to catch anything or not. I tried fishing with spoons, crankbaits, and even live worms. I ended up catching more fish on the artificial lures than I did the live bait. The bigger fish came on the red eye shad but luckily all of the lures worked with some success.

Have you ever tried bass fishing with a Strike King KVD 1.5 Squarebill Crankbait? I have some easy bass bank fishing tips for beginners.

You should always keep in mind how deep your crankbait is swimming and you will have more success.
