Fall Fishing and what Bass see question

Recommended Posts

1. Isnt Fall supose to be the absolute best Bass Hawg catching season? I know its either Spring or Fall....

2. I heard or read somewhere that all Bass see things in a pixel type form which are tiny squares if you dont know what pixel art looks like. My question is, is this valid? Also do Bass see the full color spectrum as we do or do they only see certain colors while others dont exist to them?

-Thanks.

Fall is a numbers time not as many giants are caught in the Fall as in the Spring. Not to say that giants aren't caught in the fall. My personal best was caught in September. Not really Fall per say but sort of inbetween summer and fall. In Texas anyway.

As far as the color thing. I created a post that had allot of great advise given about this: Here it is again: http://www.bassresource.com/bass_fishing_forums/YaBB.pl?num=1156176985/0

I think the closer to winter you catch fish, the larger they are going to be due to them gorging themselves for the cold season. I know a lot of people in my area actually stop fishing around the beginning of October b/c archery season starts.

Most of the larger fish I catch are in the spring time, they seem more territorial.

Bass can identify shapes, size, and color in stained to muddy water. Because you have objects in the water that cause the water to become stained or muddy it would be hard for a bass to identify detail of a lure.

In clear water bass have more of an acute since of sight. They can pick out more detail and can pinpoint objects at a greater distance.

Also do Bass see the full color spectrum as we do or do they only see certain colors while others don't exist to them?

Depends on how you look at it. It is hard to give a blanket statement without adding in other variables. Light penetration effects how color is seen also the color of the water and color of the cover effect what color is seen or how the color used has changed by the other colors surrounding it. I'll give you an example. If I use a junebug worm (black,grape,green flake) and I pitch it in a patch of weeds between the three colors one color will be seen the best it would be the grape. If I pitch the same worm into a brush pile a different color will be seen more so than the other colors the green flake. If I fish the same worm in low light the black will be seen the most. The amount of light and the surrounding colors masked the other colors and only one color was the most prevalent. One color was the easiest to be seen. If you fish brown colored water there is a select few colors that can be seen more so than the other colors orange would be one of them. Can bass see a bunch of colors yes but because of there environment and light penetration some colors are seen better than others under certain conditions.

Holy Crap,...IT'S CHRIS!!

The seasonal guru.

The fall feed is responsible for more than a few big bass being caught.  as for the pixel thing, I don't know.
