Ever wondered how the pros show up on a new lake and immediately start catching fish? Developing patterns quickly is an art, but its not a secret. Once you learn the method, you can do it too! Matt explains his mindset as he develops a pattern on a cold winter day. 

Matt explains how changing conditions have repositioned the fish in the lake but by applying a few keys baits a depth and location is quickly established. Your lake may look completely different but the information will apply whether you fish a river system, a tiny pond, or a giant reservoir in the South.
