Fall Bass Fishing: How To Catch Bass On Spoons

Spoon fishing is easy! Its one of the oldest fishing techniques but most anglers don't have any idea how to fish spoons for bass. The trick to getting bit on a spoon is in the details. From line material to colors, to drop speed, the subtle changes are the difference between catching and wasting time.

As the cool nights set in, the jigging spoon bite is the best it will be all year. Don't be afraid to head out to deeper water in search of schooling fish. If you can find bass around baitfish you've got the recipe for quick success.

We use a variety of spoons to catch the bass. Matching the size of the baitfish can be very important so don't be afraid to change sizes, even switching to a tail spinner or underpin when the bite slows. But if you need a place to start, the 1 3/4 oz Blade Runner is the most consistent producer amongst our spoons.

Advanced Bass Fishing Tips - How To Catch Entire Schools Of Fish!

Quit wasting time and quit catching the small ones. Tim explains our exact system for triggering schooling bass into feeding and then walks through each move we make to keep those bass aggressively feeding until the biggest fish in the school begin to bite. 

Most bass anglers have the opportunity to fish for large schools of fish but very few even realize it. Ever reeled in a bass and had other bass follow it in? Ever caught a bass, sat down, retied, etc... and then cast out and got bit again right away? If you were prepared these are both scenarios where you may have been able to catch bass after bass after bass, and maybe even have caught the biggest bass of your life!

The key to this style of fishing is preparation. You need to be prepared to effectively target schooling bass and you need to have the mindset prepared to adjust rapidly in order to keep the school feeding. Below is a list of the lure styles we use to target schooling fish.

Boat Flipping Frog fish!

Want to boat flip your fish instead of using a net? Stop breaking rods! Stop hurting fish! We're going to quickly teach you how to boat flip safely and consistently. The next time you're on the water with heavy tackle and want to flip a fish, you're going to know exactly what to do! 

The technique of flipping fish into the boat instead of lipping them or using a net is very simple. Once you've learned the method you can replicate it over and over. Whether using heavy tackle and braided line or moderate tackle with mono or fluorocarbon, you can do this effectively. 

Below, we've broken down the gear we were using in this video. We're also going to include a handful of product lines from different companies that we recommend for boat flipping. Keep in mind that "higher end" tackle tends to be more brittle than "lower end" product so the key is to find the product lines that offer the best compromise of sensitivity, strength, and consistency.

Summer Bass Fishing: How To Catch Deep Schooling Bass

Summer is here and the big bass are moving off shore to deeper water. Has it left you stumped, wondering how to catch them? Tim explains where the fish are headed, how they position, and what baits are most effective for this style of fishing.

Start by locating tapering points, ledges, and areas that have quick deep water access. Once you've located these likely areas you're already ahead of the curve. Using electronics you can quickly locate the "sweet spot" where the fish are sitting on that piece of structure. If you don't have electronics you simply need to put in some time, fish the entire structure, until you begin catching fish. 

Below is a breakdown of the baits Tim has confidence in for locating and activating these schools of fish.
