The Art of Jig Fishing in Fall

Fall is a prime time for jig fishing. Adjusting the size of your jig to half an ounce and opting for fuller skirts can enhance your catch. The key is to focus on remaining vegetation, where fish tend to gather. Slow and steady retrieval of your jig, preferably with less aggressive trailers like the Berkeley Power Bait Chigger Craw, can yield significantly better results.

Frog Fishing for Aggressive Autumn Strikes

As vegetation starts to die off, matted vegetation becomes a hotspot for bass. Using a frog, such as the Booyah Toad Runner Frog, can be highly effective in these conditions. The unique combination of a buzz bait and frog design allows for versatile fishing over matted vegetation, lily pads, and reeds, making it an excellent choice for big, aggressive strikes in the fall transition period.

Lipless Crankbaits: A Fall Fishing Staple

The lipless crankbait, like the Strike King Tungsten 2-Tap Red Eyed Shad, stands out as a top choice for fall fishing across the United States. Ideal for covering water and targeting remaining vegetation, these crankbaits allow for continuous casting and retrieval. Their versatility makes them suitable for different conditions, whether you’re targeting weed lines, flats, or mats. Experimenting with various sounds and vibrations can also be key to attracting elusive fall bass.
