what are all my Wisconsinites using this month for largemouth ang what for smallmouth

Unfortunately I can't help specifically in Wisconsin, but here in MN my guess is that the water temps and presentations are similar.


I have been catching largemouth up shallow around weeds and docks, mostly on moving lures.  This pattern has held since mid August.  I am going largemouth fishing tomorrow locally.


I haven't been smallmouth fishing since spring but I am planning to go on Wed.  I have some intel that tubes, ned rigs, and crank baits are working in about 12 feet of water.  Some people have resorted to using sucker minnows for them, but that crowd is mostly walleye anglers accidentally running into smallmouth and then claiming they are targeting brown bass. :dontknow:


@WIGuide can maybe help but I haven't seen him post in a while.

October is an interesting month up here, pretty much everything is still on the table. By the end, lakes can be close to icing up and when the water is that cold, your bait choices go down. Here's a few solid choices that should put fish in the boat throughout the month though. 




Jerkbaits (deep and shallow)

Lipless Crankbait

Carolina Rig



Jerkbaits (deep and shallow)


Small boot tail


Blade Bait
