The first cold front is here

Wed, 10/08/2014 - 07:08

Fall is officially on the calendar and the first cold front has settled over much of the country. That’ll start the bass moving in a hurry.

One thing to always keep in mind when the water temperatures start to fall is that the shad and other forage fish will move shallow, and the bass will never be far from them. From now until true winter arrives if you find the baitfish you’ll be pretty close to the bass.

Follow the fish in the fall

Tue, 09/30/2014 - 13:08

I do a lot of hunting in the fall, but I still like to get out on the lake for a little fun fishing. One of the things I’ve noticed is that during the spring and summer, if I’m fun fishing and I can’t get out there at daylight, I generally don’t want to go because I’ve probably missed the better period.
