Glenn: Hey folks, Glenn May here with BassResourcecom, and welcome to another edition of Hank Parker's Fishing Tips, where Hank answers your questions And this one here this week comes from Kent Smith from Germantown, Tennessee, and he wants to know, "What time of year do you do begin fishing shallow running minnow baits?" Hank: Shallow running minnow baits will not necessarily be contradicted by or dictated by what time of year I should have said dictated, not contradicted Not necessarily by time of year I look at that water temp And I'm telling ya, a lotta people feel like it needs to be 60, 70 degrees before a jerkbait is effective, a floating jerkbait I've caught more big strings on minnow type baits in 52, 53 degree water temperature than I have any other water temperature So I watch that water temperature and not really depend on what time of year it is, it can be effective in January or June, it really doesn't matter I let the the conditions of the lake dictate when I use those minnow baits Glenn: Well Kent, I hope that answers your question, thanks so much for submitting it And for more tips and tricks, just head over to hankparker com where there's a whole bunch of tips and tricks and articles on there, and videos Go check it out, you're gonna love it And if you wanna get notified the next time we post some of Hank's tips, just subscribe to our channel Thanks a lot and have a great day
