Fall fishing tips for largemouth bass

TeleSouth Communications Inc
Fall is a time of transition, not only for the weather and foliage, but also for largemouth bass. Bass constantly follow baitfish, which can make it difficult to identify one particular pattern or fishing spot. The best advice for catching largemouth bass in the fall is to be adaptable to the conditions and cover as much water as possible, stated the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks.
In early fall, the best starting point is at the mouths of major creeks. From there, begin fishing upstream in the creek until you get bites. Once you start catching fish, you can likely duplicate the pattern in similar spots throughout a lake. As fall progresses, the bass will move further upstream. If creeks are absent, try fishing shallow flats with scattered cover. As winter approaches, the bass move back to the same deep water areas they used in the summer.
Fall fishing requires covering a lot of water until you find fish, making fast-moving lures the best choice. Buzzbaits, jerkbaits, square-bill crankbaits, lipless crankbaits, spinnerbaits, and swimbaits are all great choices. Try to mimic the size and color of the baitfish. Keep moving and changing baits until you connect with them. Once you find the bass, hang on for some great fishing.
