Fall Fishing Is On Fire Here.

Recommended Posts

WOW, where to start. I went to a local lake here in SE NC yesterday and man was it awesome. Started off slow in the morning, but by 1130 it was on. Shad balls running up and down the lake and the bass were just gorging. For an hour and a half straight it looked like anvils being dropped all over the water. We caught fish in spurts throughout the rest of the afternoon but they were absolutely hammering what we were throwing and man will that get your adrenalin going. If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed. it. I didn't many pics because the action was fast and furious, but will try and post a couple later. I am going to go back next weekend and try to get some video of this as well. Have fun and stay safe out there.

3 inch berkely swim baits, partner caught 2 on an a-rig but they wouldn't touch anything else. You couldn't swim the bait though you had to yo yo them or jig them through the schools and then hang on. We caught somewhere around 20-30 with the largest being somewhere between 6 and 8. Didn't have a scale and I know human eyes are no where near as accurate. Going back as often as possible between now and the 29th as they are closing the lake for ramp revamp.

You might try a fluke or double fluke rig, too.

Do you have a good case of bass thumb?

Kent, we tried flukes and we just weren't getting bit. Honestly that was the first thing I thought of when I saw them busting. Yeah I had some bass thumb going on and a few scrapes from hooks being drug across my hand when I was attempting to lip them.

If you look over my right shoulder you can make out the sea gulls trying to catch the leftovers.

I am really going to do my best to get some video next weekend.
