Fall Movement is Upon Us
by Mike Gerry
As we move further into the fall and early winter bite movement of the bass become more predictable than ever. Bass become predictable and are very much creatures of habit and understanding their patterns and locations carry over from one year to the next. Location becomes key and fishing where the fish are, is much easier than not. Location and patterns from past years are now replicated!
Details of schooling fish
As we progress into August and fall fishing, the one thing you will notice is the chasing and feeding of the bass all over the schools of bait fish.
The Tough Summer Bite
As we move thru July and into the heat of the month of August one thing that remains constant is that you must present your bait, so the bass reacts to it.
My Bait Choices in the Heat
As we move into the hottest part of the summer, which is generally August, I mainly focus on baits that I can work over the top of the grass early in the day, then move to baits I can get into the holes of the grass.
Keys to Skipping a Bait
As the summer progresses and the water continues to increase in temperature, we all find that the bass start to hunt the shade during the day.
