This kind of rig is going to be most successful in cold water, but I'm introducing it now anyways. The water has to be clear and cold for this to work, otherwise the bass are gonna have no motivation to go after such a small, useless jig. A lot of fisherman really doubt that this could be effective, but after trying it learn why it works. Suspended bass--aka cold bass-- are just going to be trying to conserve energy and get nutrition by going after bait that suits those conditions. This jig, which consists of a floater (bobber), 3 way swivel, duck hair/hair reminiscent of a fly. You've gotta put the jig 8 to 14 feet before the floater depending on the temperature. To catch some bass with this jig, cast it out toward the bank and let it settle-you best do this on a slightly windy day. Watch the bobber and wait for a strike. Watch the bobber diligently, as it may be slowly rather than quickly moved. If you don't have any wind (or even if you do) make sure to move the tip a bit so the bobber will send vibrations down to the lure and get it moving. Then, wait! You'll be sure to catch some winter bass with this. Tight lines!
