Fall bass fishing

Fall bass fishing is upon us.
Air temps have dropped and water temps are following, as we head into the fall feeding season for the bass. As the water continues to cool, and we get more and stronger cold fronts, stable fishing will dissipate, but the fish will also begin to binge-feed, fattening up for the winter ahead.Try not to fish the day after a front. If you have no choice, though, don’t waste your time getting up early and hitting the lake before daylight.
Remember to fish the windblown points and flats in the afternoon, after the sun has warmed the water back up a bit. Doing this can load the boat if you hit the right spots. Chunk a spinnerbait or Rat-L-Trap along these windy sections and hang on!
