Best November Soft Plastics

Recommended Posts

I know its that time of year to pull out the cranking rod but any one still throwing t-rigs? if so whats your soft plastic of choice & whats your favorite color for it? the fishing bug bit me bad this year because I usually hunt most of November so i'm fairly ignorant when it comes to late fall/early winter fishing.  thanks.

I know this seems like a generic answer but to me...a senko.  Color depends on clarity but probably green pumpkin or watermelon red flake.

I throw a t-rig 12 months a year. 90% of the time it is a trick worm, mag finesse worm, or a lizard.

It really doesn't matter.  Just because it's November doesn't mean what you were throwing in July won't work. Just start with trying to fish with something you have confidence in that could mimic the baitfish where you're fishing. It's not so much about certain baits as much as it is about locating the fish then throwing a particular bait that would be best for the area you're fishing.

Rage craw in black and blue flake or green pumpkin works good for me, but any soft plastic is gonna work year round in the right places honestly...

Don't count out moving baits just yet.  I catch a lot of fish on shallow cranks and lipless cranks this time of year.

If you're getting bit then who cares.  If you're not getting bites then it's a good idea to downsize everything or try a different technique.  A lot of times in fall the baitfish are at their absolute biggest so depending on what you're surrounded by is where you should start.  If you're fishing Millwood, I'd say just look for baitfish and you'll do well.  Last year I went out in early December on Bull Shoals with three people on a boat.  I was throwing a big mop jig and the other guys where throwing finesse jigs.  We all did about equally well with a couple of better than average fish apiece.  Get my drift?  Sometimes it doesn't matter the size and sometimes you couldn't buy a bite if you had the money if you're not using a particular color or size of bait it seems.  Best plan of action in my opinion is start off by trying to match the hatch then go from there.

I think "moving lures" are a better option in the fall. Specifically, Rage Blade with a Structure Bug or

Cut-R trailer. Right now topwater (Zara Spook) and jerkbaits (LC Pointer and Megabass Ito Vision 110)

are both RED HOT!

The bass down south are in full fledged fall patterns, for numbers it's shallow water spinner/crank bait bite, for size it's deep water structure with t-rigs, jigs, deep cranks, & c-rigs in that order!
