Sep 30, 2016 - With the weather cooling and the days shortening, it might be time to switch up your strategies to ones appropriate to fall changes. Whether you’re out on the lake or exploring the shallower waters of streams and tributaries, Bassresource provides some tactics from professional angler Bill Wilcox to help make the most out of your time on the water.
“If you’re on a lake that you have fished in the spring, simply use those same spring locations as your starting point... Another thing I like about fall is that you can use a wide variety of types of lures and still have a successful tournament or day on the lake. From the top to the bottom, and everything in between, almost anything will catch fish in the fall. But not everything will work on every lake.
“First and foremost think big baits. All of the forage base, especially the fry that were once so small in the spring have had all summer to grow so the baitfish are larger. Unless I'm facing a real tough bite my first choice will most likely be a larger lure at this time of the year.”
