Video: How to Catch Largemouth Bass in Fall

Fall is one of my favorite times to fish for bass. Like many other fish species, largemouth gain a sense of urgency with cold weather coming on and try their hardest to stock up on calories before winter. That means they’ll often behave aggressively toward topwater lures and other fast presentations. Cover the water until you find bait, then change your presentations until you get bass to react. This season can produce some of the hottest fishing and biggest bass of the year.
