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.
