With this selection of baits you're able to cover every bass fishing scenario that fall fishing can throw your way. Whether the fish are up shallow in docks and timber or out in the scattered grass, tullies, and bull rushes, you'll have lures to reach and trigger the bass into biting. 

Use the glidebait, swimbaits, and reaction baits to locate schooling fish but once you've found them slow down with the squarebill crankbait, jig, and lipless crankbait to capitalize on the schooling bass. 

Once you've located a school of fish the key is to use the smaller bass to "trigger" the big bass into biting. When large bass are alone you're relying on your ability to fool them into biting but once they join a school they become very susceptible to the excitement of the group. Get a small bass to bite and you may be amazed to find the next bite will come from a very agressive, very big bass. 

We hope you can use these tips to help you catch more big bass this Fall! We know the seasons are changing and the bass are following suit but this is prime time to catch a GIANT BASS so head out to the lake and get a school fired up!
