Shorter days, cool temperatures and buck fever go a long ways toward calming many an avid angler’s desire to put the boat in the water and go fishing for trophy bass. But for everyone who already has the tarp over the boat and the rods and reels in the closet, know this: autumn – especially mid-November to mid-December – offers some terrific opportunities to catch bass. In fact, it may be one of the best times of the year.
You know fall is here when you see the leaves starting to change, the cooler breezes blow through and comfortable temperatures take the place of summer's stuffy heat. A lot of people are thinking about where to hang their deer stands. But if you refuse to put away the rod and reel and park the boat like me, you're out there trying to figure out how to catch a bass during the fall transition.
When life deals you lemons, make lemonade. The guy who formulated that tidbit was probably thinking of one-time nagging little problems. I doubt he had in mind being buried with a whole crop of lemons year after year. But that's exactly what bass face each year with the coming of winter another round of massive lemon drops.
If you respool your reels as much as I do, I hope you stocked up on some extra fluorocarbon line recently because it's summer and you're going to need it.
Sometimes, you just never know what's going to be on the other end of the line when you reel it in. On most days, that can be a pretty fun prospect especially in a place you don't fish a lot.
There are lots of ways to catch fish throughout a fishing season. Every year, an angler should try to learn a new technique. By doing so, that angler will be able to more successful more often.
Trying to put a pattern together for last year's BASS Elite Series event on Lake Oneida, I was lucky enough to spot birds that were actively feeding on baitfish. I got close enough but not too close to see that they were stuffing themselves on juvenile yellow perch that were being pushed to the top of the water column through an opening in some aquatic grasses.
Sometimes anglers get ideas locked in their heads about certain techniques. Some think that using a jig requires a natural knowledge of how the bait should be hopped across the bottom.
Others think that using a crankbait is nothing more than just throwing it out and reeling it back in, or putting it out behind the boat and trolling around.
And then there are those that think that bobbers are what inexperienced anglers use to detect strikes.
Bottom Bouncer Live Bait Rigging is a great tactic to use when walleyes are relating tight to deep structure and are considered to be in a neutral or negative feeding mood.
Being a Southern guy and seeing as how I won the Classic Flippin' a Berkley PowerBait Chigger Craw, most people probably don't associate me with shaky head jigs. For a lot of people, fishing with a shaky head means cooler water, smallmouth fishing, things like that. Sometimes, misconceptions abound.
