What are the best bass lures for when the water gets extremely cold before ice forms or after it thaws?,
I was thinking grubs, drop shot, jerkbait, jig slowly twitched, wondering what everyone else throws when It gets really cold?

don’t go ice fishing anymore bc fell through 2 years ago, that was enough for me.

Fished a mwcd lake yesterday water temp was 42. started off with a dt6 and caught a bass in 2 foot of water within 5 min. Ended up casting cranks and ned rig rest of the day and caught 10 bass and one saugeye. All in 5 foot or less of water. Tried jerkbait for awhile with no bites. Usually I prefer a jerkbait more than a crank this time of year but they wanted the crank. If I could only use 3 baits from November to ice it would be a dt6 crank a smithwick elite 8 jerkbait and a ned rig.

A buddy of mine has been killing them with Neds, 2.75" tubes, and hair jigs. Been working them real slow but has been catching some nice ones.
