We all love a good slugfest, right? Lots of fish, big limits, shredded thumbs; but such is not always the case. In fact, we laud the big bass bonanzas because they’re more the exception than the rule. More often, we have to work at it — sometimes, incredibly hard.
Winter can be a tough time for bass fishermen, but no matter how cold and nasty it is out there, somebody always seems to find them. Tai Au is one of those guys, and we went out with him to find out how he manages to boat decent bass during the toughest time of the year. Just to make it extra hard, we met him at Lake Pleasant, just north of Phoenix, AZ, famous for being a tough lake in any season.
