Spring is the time when largemouth bass anglers go on point, ready to drop everything in search of a wide-open bite as fish prepare for, engage in, and depart the spawn. But with that excitement comes crowded waters and finicky fish which react negatively to even the slightest change in conditions. In the fall, however, big bass are more stable and therefore more predictable. They’re feeding in preparation for winter, and following baitfish migrations that occur like clockwork. If your friends are in the deer stand or watching football, launch the boat and bank on some bucketmouths.
