A lot of anglers do not concentrate on aggregating bass. They like to aggregate primarily in October and mid January when it begins to get a good cold snap like ...more around October 16-31 or January 3-12 It has to be cold otherwise they will not aggregate. You can can hook into some nice ones. Big and little Crappie Aggregate with the bass in early January and I this behavior very interesting for my studies. When the Bass are hitting my Crankbait hard, but they don't bother the baby Crappie because it;s a lake meeting go figure it out. because they show up every year same time same place.
