Hi all! Long time report stalker first time poster. Can anyone give me some tips on how to effectively fish for smallmouth during late fall(now)? Not asking for location just asking what I should be using. Was out last Sunday using lindy rig fishing 30' with a good buddy. Caught about 4 smallies and 2 break offs. Had one football on then drag started to work again and broke off. Didn't use backing on braid so it was spinning.

I fished GB on Monday and they were working on removing the piers in the North corner.They were messing around at Trinkies too,I don't know if it's completely removed or not.It looked liked the tops were off all the piers north of the library.

Fished last night 8:00pm - 12:00pm. Was out with my 11 yr old son so we casted spinners and got bit off once....that was it he went to bed in the bow.

Then I trolled thundersticks and flickershads and not even a bite. Stayed shallow 10-13'.

Then drove around the breaks to look for bait fish and I could not find much. Bait fish were scattered.

Still allot of green healthy weeds down to 20'.

I figured it was not going to be to good with the high pressure, no wind and 58 deg water temps.......but when that's the only time you can go you give it a shot. =======

I see allot of questions below about fall bass and the "best is coming when they put the feedbag on etc.....". That's not my experience.

I have fished Geneva in the fall for 10+ years now. When the water temps fall below 60 deg the LM bass get sluggish and the artificial bite gets tough. I see Prov is going to rivers so what does that tell you. The Smallies start to school up big time and feed as wolf packs. So your best bet is Roaches, Shiners and Suckers during the day. You can still get em on artificials but you are going to work harder. If you know the Smallmouth areas just stay put......they will come and go to that area. I have had doubles when hanging meat on smallies.

Just my opinion for what its worth.

Tight Lines!!!!!

I like to see fishing reports. If I'm gonna drive a couple hundred miles to fish an area I'm not familiar with reports and pics are great. Fishing tips are even better. I like to help out my fellow fishermen. That's why I visit this website weekly. Im a catch and release guy. Just want the experience. Gonna drop some money to have a good time and hearing good fishing reports and seeing awesome pics like the ones lately make me even more excited about making my trip to new waters.

My apologies Daruoho. I was under the mistaken impression that the actual purpose of this board was to post reports. I also didn't know that it was frowned upon by the true experts to post a report if one used a guide.
