The fall bass fishing technique
Or light tackle, to the “bait caster’ fly fishing bass remains one of the sins most “today” because of the vigorous fighting that lead these brave fish.
Have you ever thought about this fishery in the fall just before the closing of the season? I highly recommend it to you! It is at this time that the Bass are the more aggressive and it is also at this time of the year that one manages to take the largest specimens.
That said, you will need to make some changes to your tactics because the bass them definitely strategy change when autumn comes.
You see, with the arrival of the fall season, the bass congregate to hunt large quantity of prey for good “fill” before winter, period during which they will become lethargic.
Today I therefore take this opportunity to share the knowledge I have accumulated over the years and which have worked well for me. Without further ADO, let’s get serious!
Locate bait fish
As mentioned earlier, with the arrival of the fall of the bass change their hunting methods, and gather in order to increase their chance of success. So, it makes sense to believe that a group of bass will be looking for more large schools of forage fish. Once you have located the Baitfish, you are in an excellent position to prepare you to take big bass of fall. Areas that have been the most successful, in terms of location of bait fish, were often the small streams flowing into a larger body of water, the Senior Fund, the cliffs or other abrupt variations, the groves of underwater algae and the shallow areas.
Note schools of forage fish
Once you have identified the location of a school of fish bait to the arrival of autumn, take note. You will notice that these schools of forage fish will tend to evolve in the same areas year after year. I therefore recommend the use of a GPS, a card or any other way to note the location of these highly productive areas for fishing in bass to Transporthint.
Adjust your offerings according to the species of fish-forage
Whatever that might seem obvious, many forget this detail that too often makes the difference between a day of incredible fishing and that it preferred to forget… Therefore, it is essential to observe the species which feeds our predator before sending them our decoy. Water is rather cold at this time of the year, the colors of the fish are often very bright and this is why I suggest the use of fish-swimmer or ‘jig’ with the cross lines dominant. These particularly attract the attention of fish with result in the capture of very nice shots.
Because the bass are very aggressive at this time of the year, lures with a provocative and erratic actions often tend to work well.
Another approach which has been very productive to me is the use of lure type Senko. These lures can have a subtle action that destabilizes not too the shoal of fish bait. So you are able to send your lure directly to the bench without causing too much panic. The bass will be attracted by the large size of your lure, compared to the rest of the bench, and this will often result in very nice catches.
In order to make use of flexible lure. the lures of type “tube” are exceedingly useful to “scrape” the bottom and cause the bass in a different plane.
Watch the wind
An element that seems benign, but often allowed me to better understand the movements of shoals of fish is the wind. Windy days are to raise the forage fish away from the wind. So if you go to an area where you had identified schools of bait fish and they aren’t there and it’s a windy day, go back into the wind and are looking for structures. It is good chance that your bench is made here and of course, with big hungry fall Smallmouth!
Days of autumn, are very difficult for fishermen because there are often alternating between strong breakthrough of Sun and large covered shady very cold. Add to that a North wind and light rain or snow and you have all the ingredients for a hard day of fishing. Dress appropriately and wear several layers of clothing in order to remove when not necessary.
Fall bass fishing is a great sin that will make you live great emotions. Follow the above advice and I am sure that you will be able to take beautiful specimens. Be sure to keep only the catches you plan to consume and replace others with water in order to take back them another day!
