"one-Two Combo" - Catching Fall Bass

Recommended Posts

Hello all!
 
Today i read an very interesting article about fall fishing by Mr Tom Redington (here), and he starts like that:
 

 

 

"One of the first moves that boxers learn is the "one-two combo". The sequence of a left jab followed by a right cross is a basic fundamental for any prizefighter"

 

It seems good to me, however I am having some difficulties in reproducing it...

 

 

Could anyone here give more details/examples for this technique?

 

Thank you!

you mean a 2 bait combo?  You could fish say a blade bait or swimjig, or a swmbait (hollow body 4") as your primary search bait, and a missed strike quickly follow it up with a swimming senko.  I tend to use an A-rig as a search bait  (from shore) and if I miss a fish or get a couple hits without hooking them, quickly follow up with a dropshot and a 3 1/2" swing impact or live impact.

The waters I fish in the north east are different, if you find a concentration of fish you'll get more with a moving presentation. We have done this for decades here, in the spring you can get them by searching and then slowing down but not in fall, the fish will not hit a bait that is on the bottom when they are feeding for winter, they seem focused on crankbaits, jerkbaits, and spinnerbaits. In the latter part of fall you will find them with a jerkbait and when you do, that is when you slow down with a tube or hair jig but that is normally when the water in in the mid 40s and it is basically a winter pattern.

Ah ok i got it!

 

Finding the location seems to be the hardest part of it. Im just having problems to get a bite on poppers. 

 

The fish seems to be less active/agressive on surface to me during the Fall, maybe Im wrong or just not using the right technique.

What's your water temp?  Topwaters can be good, but all depends on temp and forage base as well.

Look at carrying a pond thermometer with you during the fall, winter and spring, those few degrees can make a dfference or could have a temp drop and not even realize it.  I would look into fishing topwater later in the afternoon and not so much early as the evenings can cool the surface temps so warm sunny afternoons may be better.  Spinnerbaits, rattle-traps and bladed jigs are a good tool to search for fish and may work better for you locating feeding fall fish.
