How To Catch More Bass With Spoons - Fall Bass Fishing

Ready to catch more bass this Fall? The spoon briefly regained popularity when the magnum flutter spoon was introduced but as a whole, its an overlooked tool for Fall bass fishing. Today Matt and Tim sit down together and teach us everything we need to know about fishing a spoon. Tim takes an in depth look at flutter spoons while Matt focuses his attention on jigging spoons.

The biggest misconception about flutter spoons is they need to be fished deep. We've seen great results in 2-6 feet of water around dock pilings in the Fall. Don't be fooled into believing this awesome fish catcher won't work for you! Jigging spoons on the other hand require quite a bit of depth. Most of the bites while fishing vertically come between 20 and 60 feet of water.

There are a handful of tricks that will improve your time fishing spoons. For flutter spoons, Tim recommends adding a swivel to the head of the bait as well as a stinger hook on the line above the lure. For jigging spoons Matt also recommends a swivel but instead of a stinger, he recommends a feathered treble hook for converting wary fish.

Below is a breakdown of the gear the guys discussed and used in the video. We've broken it up by category to simplify it for you.

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.

The Best Trick To Save Deep Caught Bass

Ever have a bass go belly up in the livewell because of the bends? Had to use a needle to fizz them or use fin clips to keep them upright before tournament weigh-in? Here is a quick bass fishing tip that will make all the difference with those bloated bass! 

Its simple, its cheap, and it keeps us from inadvertently injuring the bass we care so much about. There is nothing wrong with relieving the pressure inside a bass' air bladder with a needle. The problem is most bass fishermen don't know how to do it properly and end up stabbing holes in the wrong places, causing irreparable damage. By using a lead strip weight you can return the bass to a comfortable depth, wait for equalization to begin, then gently shake them free.
