I don't much care for summer bass fishing. It's not like I have a choice, I fish when and where there are tournaments. It's just that fall tournaments and fall bass fishing is so much more fun and productive for me. I like fishing right now. This time of year is my favorite and I catch lots of fish.
The fall season is a great time to catch lots of walleyes, and it’s a great time to catch big walleyes. There are also a lot of outstanding ways to catch walleyes this time of year, but if limited to one presentation, many of the best walleye anglers in the Midwest would choose a jig. Here’s how you can catch more and bigger walleyes on jigs in the next few weeks.
Among all the different factors that affect bass behavior, none has more impact than the seasons. Fish – especially bass – are ruled by the weather.
September is a month of plenty, if you're a bass that is. There are baitfish everywhere. Huge clouds of baitfish. That's one thing about bass fishing now that makes it stand out better than most months.
Most anglers are pretty open-minded when it comes to fishing. Some have their favorite species of fish that they prefer, and they concentrate on that species.
With any presentation, confidence is the key. A swimbait isn't like a dropshot; it doesn't catch the volume of fish like a dropshot. If an angler learns to dropshot and takes it to his pond, they can almost instantly start catching fish.
In the summer, predator fish like walleyes, pike, bass, and crappies will be wherever their food is. If there isn't something for them to eat in an area, they simply won't be there, or at least they won't be there very long.
If you spend time at the lake, either at the marina or around the boat slips, undoubtedly you’ve noticed bass cruising around. You’ve probably been on the water since before sunrise, made a long run to an end of the lake and all the while there are bass within a short walk of a hot cup of coffee and an indoor restroom. It can be frustrating.
By this time of year, throughout many parts of the country, bass have seen a fair amount of fishing pressure. Common sense tells us that bass in this situation can become harder to catch and luring them to bite requires downsizing both line and bait. While this may be a good tactic for most places, targeting pressured bass in summer doesn’t always require picking up a spinning rod and a finesse bait.
Some people think that the summertime is not the best time to catch bass – much less big bass. The hotter and higher the sun gets, the better sitting in front of the air conditioner begins to sound. It’s during this time of year that too many anglers opt for sipping iced tea instead of fishing.
