Bass Perch

Would next weekend be a good time to go fishing?

We live in Kansas City, and we own several large strip pits east of Pleasanton Ks. The temperature is supposed to be around 45 degrees. Will the fish be active in this cool of weather? We mainly fish for bass, perch, and crappie, if that helps. What type of lures work best in the winter? When do freshwater fish start becoming active again after winter? I know it's in the spring sometime, but how early on?

The fish will still be very slow and not wanting to take a whole lot of baits. For the Bass throw things like 3/4 ounce-1/2 ounce jig combos fished in deeper cover, Texas Rigged worms, Rattle Traps, and deeper diving crankbaits. For your Crappie throw Crappie Jigs with a floater. Start off pretty deep with floater about 3 or so feet up the line and work your way deeper until you find where they tend to be. Throw it out into some cover, give it a few twitches, pause for a few seconds and repeat all the way in.
The fish will start being pretty active when the water gets up in the mid 60's or so. They will still be somewhat slow but they will be willing to chase down a few more baits rather than you having to throw right on top of them like you do many times this time of year. There's no set time because of the different temps around the country but as I said when the water hits upwards of the 60 degree mark they will start feeding a bit heavier.
