A common mistake all anglers make is we adopt preconceived notions about when the fish bite and how active they will or won’t be.
Cold water is a good example. Conditions we’re seeing here in Michigan refute beliefs that bass go “dormant.”
Most of the fishing public believes bass activity shuts down when the water temperature gets into the mid-40s, but that’s not true.http://www.bassmaster.com/blog/its-never-too-cold-bass-bite

Any experienced angler will tell you it’s important to spend a lot of time studying what bass do and their seasonal patterns in different lakes and regions of the country.
Knowing those factors will help you narrow the search of where to find and catch them.
But equally important, and oftentimes a wild card to being a successful angler, is dictated by a knowledge of the forage - especially baitfish - in a given lake.
Much of what is discussed about baitfish is centered on shad and rightly so. Shad are a primary forage in most of our impoundments.http://www.bassmaster.com/blog/know-your-baitfish
