The most important thing to consider as Fall begins is the location and activity of shad in your lake. During this time of year, the best place to start looking is usually the backs of creeks and other tributaries. The bass will be heavily relating to shad and will often give themselves away, so look for shad activity at the surface – this is a sure sign you’ve found a productive area. My go-to baits include a medium size shad-colored crankbait like a Strike King Series 1. If the wind is up, a small spinner bait or top water bait can be very productive and loads of fun.
