Fall is prime time for the crankbait! Even if your water is in the 40's you can catch bass with these tips. As water temperatures drop we keep it very simple. Instead of throwing a dozen different baits focus on key baits in key colors and you'll see way more success.
Even as the water cools we fish all ends of the spectrum. We'll use a squarebill crankbait, deep diving crankbait, and a lipless crankbait for different presentations. Despite the variety, we keep the actual baits and colors very simple.
The first bait is the LV-500 lipless crankbait. The second bait is the Lucky Craft 1.5 Squarebill. Third is the River2Sea Biggie and last is the Strike King 6XD. By using these baits as a system you can cover virtually any situation without owning an entire tackle box of crankbaits. Simplify colors as well, focusing on a ghost color, a Flashy Color, and a solid or white color for your best chance at success.
