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.

Below is a breakdown of our gear:

BIG Swimbaits vs. BIG Bass! Underwater Fishing Footage!

Giant Bass, Big Swimbaits, crystal clear water, EPIC FOOTAGE!! These fish are so aggressive they even hit the camera! We've captured a lot of underwater footage over the last few years but nothing like this! Watch these monsters come unglued on these big baits. 

Its amazing to watch the interaction between these two bass. They seem to get super aggressive and calm back down, and in some instances calm each other down. Bait placement and movement seemed to be the key. Even movement that doesn't appeal to use seemed to trigger a feeding or defensive response in these fish.
