Q:
What is your favorite late summer/early fall bass bait? I do most of my bass fishing in the spring and early summer with spinners and top water. As well as rubber worms while there on nest.

right now ive been doing good in the early mornings and later in the day when its cooler on top waters, like buzzbaits, and poppers through some thicker stuff, and when it warms up i throw out a worm, i went today caught 1 on buzzbait, 1 on scum frog, 2 on a 7.5 inch red shad worm, 2 on a senko weightless, 1 on a watermelon red lizard, and 3 on a 6 inch tequila sunrise colored worm, i was just experimenting seeing what worked practically everything i threw was getting bites. i also missed quite a few on the buzz bait, they were just hitting behind it even with a trailer hook and slow retrieve

Sounds like you had an alright day! Do you prefer any specific poppers? I don't have much experience with them.

For poppers I like Rapala skitter pops, Rebel Pop-R's, and Arbogast Hula poppers. It has been about the same for me as it has been for ethan. I will pick up a couple on a topwater, and then switch to a worm a pick up a couple,then as that slows down back to a top water once it gets a little later. It seems like I pick up more fish on the Pop-R and skitter pop, but on average larger fish on the hula popper. Buzz baits have been slow, but "walk the dog" baits like zara spooks have been good.

thats the poppers too, the hula poppers tend to make a biggeer splash IMO, when im in thick moss and weeds i like to throw a scum frog out there, you have to wait a sec adter a fish hits it and make sure hes on

live minnows (golden shiners), rubber worms and shad raps all work well
