Three-pronged approach - Square-bill, jig and spinnerbait are fall staples

September is the first month when bass fishermen across the Carolinas get the chance to target fish that are moving back into shallow water, and I can’t wait. Because I’m normally fishing shallow this month, I am always going to have three different baits tied on: a square-billed crankbait, a jig and a spinnerbait.

June is worth the wait - Hungry bass can make your day all-month long

Since I became a bass fishermen so many years ago, there’s one thing I came to believe, and I’ve never taken it back. There is no better month to fish on our North Carolina lakes and rivers than June. I think it is absolutely the best month to fish, because bass are everywhere, hitting just about anything you want to throw at them.

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.
