I rarely use live bait in winter. It’s not that I dislike it—I just catch more and bigger fish with artificial lures on most days. Still, there are a few times each winter, typically during the dog days of February, when live bait excels. But here’s the rub: I’m more fanatical about the way I rig my live bait than I am with any other presentation.
