Since I hadn't been out fishing in almost 2 weeks and hadn't caught any bass in almost 2 months, I decided to hit a secret spot with some live bait. So I went out and bought a couple dozen nightcrawlers and hit some water. With the cold weather that we have been having there was a coating of ice on much of the water. I had to fight off a lot of panfish but I did end up with 5 small, but fat LMB. All of them were 12-14 inches.
