The Summer to Fall transition can be a really difficult time for anglers to locate bass. Their Summer patterns are fading and the Fall patterns haven't yet come on strong. However, while the bulk of anglers are struggling there are a handful that are capitalizing and turning the Fall into one of the most productive times of year to catch big bass.
In this video Matt breaks down the best baits for Fall bass fishing. This video started out as a "Top 5" video but instead Matt pulled out his actual Fall transition baits box and shows you every bait in it.
Below are the baits and colors shown...
-S-Waver 168 Swimbait in "Light Trout" color
LV-500 Lipless Crankbait (Ghost Minnow, Chartreuse Shad, American Shad)
-Bling Spinnerbait 3/8 oz (Abalone Shad)
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 and tullies, 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 and catch as many as possible. Don't be afraid to camp out on a school of bass and attempt to catch every fish in the group, this is one of the best ways to get a BIG bass to bite.
