Tracking fall bass

Predictability is one thing that you should really take into account when it comes to locating bass in the fall. There are a few known factors that should be applied — none better than following baitfish movement — to figure out where bass will set up.

There are some things you can assume as the fall season appears. The weather starts to cool down (especially in the morning hours), the humidity decreases, and we simply don’t see those extremely hot days that make the air heavier than the bait you are throwing. Pay close attention to the movement of baitfish from deeper, cooler locations to the surface and shallow waters of any coves or inlets you can find on your favorite lake. The water temperatures here will come up a little faster. More often than not, you’ll find a lot of baitfish activity at the surface early in the morning. It may not last long, but this is a prime time to hunt for bass.
