Hey I'm looking for some new lures to try any suggestions ?
What is your favorite bass fishing lure for fall or just in general
Lately its been a texas rigged senko. Had many more bites on this, especially when bite was tough.
Love topwater. For the first time this year I tried a Whopper Plopper. Hands down the best topwater bait I have ever used.
I usually start with a wacky or Texas rigged Senko. But Fall is a great time of year to use crankbaits so I'd certainly give them a try.
Today it was a crankbait.
Double willow gold spinner bait
A six inch black rubber worm with a single twister style tail. Eighth oz. cone shaped slip sinker in front and an exposed long shank hook. I know many like to rig this weedless, but worms are cheap- think the exposed hook gives better chance. Of course eveyone prefers top water for the pure excitement, but if I gotta get me a bucketmouth , worm my go to of choice.
topwater until water falls below 55 degrees
Best fall baits;
1. Lipless crankbait
2. Football jig
3. Deep crank
5. A fluke
Overall, aside from fall, my favorite techniques to fish are a drop shot, a football jig and a 10" worm....I really love fishing all of these....a lipless crank isnt far behind though...gottta love a lipless! I also really enjoy dragging a tube...wish I got a chance to do this more. Jerk baits are super fun, too.
Sometimes I feel like I am the only guy that doesnt like fishing topwater all that much...lol
X2 Johnson silver minnow with a uncle Josh bass strip or spinning strip and for a while they even had a pork skirt which was deadly I've caught my pb largemouth 22" on this lure. It works everywhere but never caught a smallie on it. Just largemouth and pike.
