fall bass fishing

Recommended Posts

sorry if this is the wrong place to put this topic. ok guys i have read all the fall fishing articles here on the forum now i would like some input on how you guys like to find fish, types of lures, cover you guys fish during the fall...i have never fall fished here in new mexico but i was hoping some of the southern guys could give me some tips. the experience i had in michigan is that the bass come really shallow in the fall chasing baitfish and you could catch them on just about any plastic or crank and spinnerbaits. now here idk if that is the same or not. the lake has tons and tons of brushy cover to fish. with alot of rocky coves and points to go along with that. also a few nice bluff areas. the water most of the time is relatively clear but sometimes really muddy when the weekend boaters get out there. lake is 36,000 acres. i think flipping the brush would be a good start seeing that the baitfish are always in there also spinnerbaits in the brushy areas.. also i have been told topwater is awesome in the fall, but never really tried that,. but any help would be awesome thanks.

I fish topwaters and jerkbaits, I also through jigs to isolated cover.  I am a what works for me is what I fish type of guy, so maybe some of the more experienced guys on here can tell you something better.  I am sure swimbaits would work miracles this time of year.

Good Luck

I dont know about down there but last year i threw a lot of shallow cranks and they worked mirracles for me.  The lakes i fish got hit with spinnerbaits hard so i thought to myself if everyones throwing a spinnerbait what can i do different then them, so i threw shallow cranks.  You can fish them almost anywhere you fish spinnerbaits.  I had the best fishing in the fall using this technique then i did all last year.  This year im going to throw swimbaits in with my shallow cranks.

During fall I like to cover water.  I bang the shoreline in search of ACTIVE fish.  Spinnerbaits, buzzbaits, crankbaits, frogs...

The fall pattern they will be fattening up for winter.  I find that when I find ACTIVE fish, I will catch a few all at once.  Find the bait, you will find the bass.

i second that a swimbait will do wonders. THat is if the water is clear. Match the size of your baitfish though. Dont throw a 6 inch swimbait when the shad are 3.5 inches long. Crank points and stuff leading into a creek. THats what i would do right now.
