The author's description of fall fishing for bass.

The cooler weather triggers the bass to strike!

With the cooler weather of Fall swiftly approaching bass fishing is about to get really good. For a while after the temperature begins to drop bass will no longer feed only during the cool parts of the day or at night. Baitfish, crayfish, frogs and bugs will not be safe day or night. For us fishermen…well that’s a good thing.

Bass like other animals know that the long hard cold months of Winter are coming and it’s time to prepare. They will begin feeding more often in order to bulk up for the harsh time ahead. For me personally this is my most favorite time of the year to fish for bass. The bass are often very aggressive and will hit a variety of baits this time of year.

Crank baits and spinner baits are my two favorite types of lures to use during the fall. Both of these types of baits can simply be cast out and reeled in making them a no brainer to use. After all fishing should be relaxing. But most importantly these baits let you cover a great deal of water. By keeping my trolling motor on low I just follow the contour of the bank and make cast after cast. Fishing in this manner you may fish one stretch of bank and not receive a single bite while the next stretch you may load the boat.

Another reason that I like bass fishing this time of year is there is less pressure on our lakes and streams. Many fishermen are now turning their attention to hunting and the water skiers don’t really appreciate the cooler weather. Well hunters the opening day of deer season is very likely one of the best days of bass fishing…sorry to see you go…not!

Until next time, good luck and be safe on the water.
