Time to talk about the best colors for catching bass

I did a few seminars at fishing and outdoor shows this winter, and one question that I heard quite a few times was, “What are the best colors for crankbaits?”

Double up in December bass

December is a great month to fish for largemouth and striped bass in North Carolina.There are a lot of lakes around here where you can go out in December and find quality fish in that 10-foot depth range — there are other states where if you want to catch fish in the winter, you have to go in really deep water.

Try these 6 crankbaits for late October bass

October is the best month of the year to fish a crankbait for bass. Fish will be on sharp drops, and a lot of them will have moved up into that 7- to 10-foot range, especially toward the end of the month. You need to make long casts with a crankbait that’s got a wide wobble.

That’s why I’m so excited this month. On Oct. 6, six hard baits that I had a hand in designing will be available from Berkley. They were introduced at the ICAST show this past summer, and they’re already being shipped to retailers. You might not be able to put your hands on one until the latter part of the month, but you need to put them in front of a fish while they’re inclined to hit a plug.

Across North Carolina, I think June is the best month to fish for bass. When you wake up in the morning this month, you need to take all the vacation time you’ve got and go to the lake.

Spring is crankbait time

Alot of fishermen don’t think about fishing a crankbait in the spring, but except for the time when they’re on the bed, bass will hit a crankbait about as good as anything — if you know how to fish them. If you fish anywhere in the South, it’s one of the tools that you have to have in your tackle box.

Go slow, don’t stay home

Lots of bass fishermen shy away from fishing in February, and that’s a big mistake. The fishing can be tremendous if you can get a little warming trend. You’ll need to break out your crankbaits, your jerkbaits and your jigs — and an Alabama rig, you can’t leave that out.
