Bass Fishing: How To Catch Bass On Tough Days

Eat! Eat! Eat! Food is all that bass are thinking about in the Late Fall! These creatures know the cold season is coming and they waste no time filling their reserves with anything that passes in front of them. This time of year an angler can gain a ton of confidence in new lures by targeting bass that are anxious to feed. Need to learn how to catch bass on crankbaits, swimbait, jigs, etc? No problem! It all sounds wonderful until they shut down. All of a sudden you can’t get a bite, no one can, so what do you do now?

Today Tim breaks down his approach to catching bass that are shut down. Anyone can get a bite when the fish are chasing but knowing when its time to stop and adapt can be the difference between a great day and a frustrating outing. Knowing when to downsize to a dropshot, Neko rig, or other finesse bait is an art all its own. Tim explains the signs you need to keep an eye out for and follows it up with tackle recommendations.

Below is a breakdown of the tackle that Tim uses during tough conditions. When the fish turn negative, fish with confidence, knowing that you’ve adapted at the right time. The bass are still there and with a little persistence you can salvage your day on the water.

Bass Fishing: Best Baits For Fall Fishing

Look inside Matt's day box at what he's really using! There are no secrets, no hidden baits, these are the baits we're taking to the lake to catch fish right now. From Shallow to deep, big to small, it all fits in a single Plano box.

Many anglers complicate their Fall bass fishing but it doesn't have to be that way. With just a small handful of baits we're able to cover virtually any circumstance that could arise. The real beauty of this box is that it will catch fish in almost any water temp, water clarity, and regardless of what sort of baitfish the bass are eating.

Do you have any favorite baits that aren't in the box? Some would say the spinnerbait or chatter bait are missing (and they are) but for most Fall fishing conditions the Underspin, square bill, and lipless will fill the void.

Below is a breakdown of the baits in the box...
