4 Easy Lipless Crankbait Tips For Fall Bass Fishing!

Lipless crankbaits for Fall Bass?! Yes! These Tips will make it so easy that anyone can fish a lipless crankbait with confidence. Crankbait fishing doesn't have to be complicated and Matt makes it incredibly simple by breaking down 3 baits and 4 colors that will work anywhere in the country. (And then he proves it with fish catches from 5 different states!)

Lipless crankbaits are known for their effectiveness in Spring but they're equally effective in Fall. Understanding what attributes make different baits work takes all the guess work out of your fishing. In today's video Matt breaks down three baits (Jackall TN-70, 6th Sense Quake, and Lucky Craft LV-500) and shows how they can be used to cover the entire water column from coast to coast.

After explaining the baits, Matt shows how changing hooks can completely change your fishing experience, then he shows how important proper rod action is when fishing lipless crankbaits. He wraps up with some final tips on blade bait fishing in Late Fall and Early Winter. Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment Matt discussed in the video.

Where Do Bass Go During The Fall Transition? (And How To Catch Them)

Fall is fast approaching and the bass are already on the move. If your fish are starting to disappear and you don't know why, we're here to help! As the nights get cooler the bass fishing changes over night, stumping many anglers. The offshore fish begin to gather and the shallow fish abandon their Summer cover in search of new spots. If you're not ready for what comes next it can leave you scratching your head.

The Fall Transition comes much earlier than most anglers realize. Its not a slow progression, the bass will begin their movements overnight. One day you're on an awesome topwater bite, the next you can't find a fish. When this happens its time to step back and look at what is motivating these fish to move. Whether you're targeting shallow bass or deep, the bass' next movement is motivated by the baitfish's location. As the bait begins to gather, so will the bass.

If your fish are out deep, expect them to begin gathering on the best structures. Expect to find them on corners of ledges with deep water access, long tapering points that break to deep water, and later you can expect them to transition toward the backs of deep coves. Shallow fish will abandon the scattered weeds in favor of thick weed clumps and hard structures. As the seasons progress these fish will begin bunching up along ambush points and pockets.

Below is a breakdown of the gear we recommend using during these conditions. We've separated it into shallow and deep approaches depending on which group of fish you're pursuing.

How To Catch Bass In The Heat! (Its Easy)

Let's go catch Giant Summer bass together! Its not hard once you know where to look! Today we're going to show you exactly how the bass position on hot days and what you need to know to catch them. We're going to show you 6 different techniques you can use to run the hot weather pattern and catch bass anywhere in the country this Summer.

Many anglers are afraid to go out in the middle of the day in Summer. The heat gets so intense it can be really uncomfortable but the same scenario that keeps you away makes the bass bite like clockwork.
