February is here and the ground hog has spoken promising, according to myth, several more weeks of winter. Regardless of winter’s grip, something that will warm your heart and soul is a February trip to the 560-acre Gibson County Lake, located just east of Trenton, Tennessee.
It provides excellent year-round fishing opportunities, but it is especially good for trophy bass fishing when fishing the year’s shortest month. If you are looking for the largemouth of the lifetime, this is a place you need to check out.
The introduction of the Florida strain of largemouth have helped bass here achieve hefty weights.
A high-percentage technique used to catch largemouth during the month of February is Carolina-rigging. And at this time of year, on bright days, a lot of super-sized bass are caught using this rig near cover that’s found at depths of 15-20 feet.
When it’s overcast, the fish move up near cover in 5-10 feet.
