We should all do more to conserve the bass we love to catch as well as their habitat. There are lots of little things we can do to help with preserving bass and their habitat. Keeping trash and line out of our lakes is an easy first step that can be accomplished simply by keeping a bag for trash in the boat and disposing of it at the end of the day. Also wash your boat, trailer, and livewells out at the end of the day which will help with keeping invasive grass and organisms from spreading to new lakes. Taking good care of our fish during the tournament day is another important thing to do. Fish preservation chemicals, livewell aeration, and attentive care are good starting points for keeping fish alive and well taken care of and important way to maintain a positive image of our sport. Remember some of these tips and please let me know of any other ideas you may have as well.
Leaves are falling as well as the temps and fish are beginning to school. It is here finally after our prolonged summer and I am ready for it. Many fisherman have now headed to the woods and are hunting and watching football but this can be the best time of year to fish. Fish are schooling and moving to the backs of creeks and feeding up for winter. Find some time to go the lake and catch some great fall action.
Top waters and plastic jerk baits are great right now on schooling fish around main lake points and current breaks as well as the back of wind blown creeks with shad in them. A-rigs and crankbaits are also great for those fish feeding on schools of shad in deeper water. Go search them out and you may have the best day of your year this month!!
I am not a pro fisherman just Joe Average out here trying to enjoy the outdoors. I love to bass fish and love the competition of tournament fishing as well. Hope you find something within my sight that is entertaining or informative..
