The Fall transition is Crankbait season! Get prepared so you're not left behind this year. The change from Summer to Fall patterns happens like the flip of a switch and the bass start feeding heavily on baitfish. Whether going shallow or deep there is a crankbait that will help you get more bites.
We break these Fall transition fish into two categories. Some push baitfish shallow and will be targeted with Squarebills. Others follow the bait out deep and will be targeted with deep diving crankbaits. Both groups are easily catchable if you know what to look for and which baits to use.
Tim's Shallow Arsenal is broken down by very specific depth ranges. When targeting bass in the shallows there isn't a single square bill that does it all, at least not if you want to maximize your time on the water. Here are Tim's preferred baits.

Matt's Deep baits are broken down by diving depth as well but not nearly to the extent as the shallow baits. Matt typically has 1-2 baits that overlap per depth range.
