For us fresh water kayak anglers, fall is one of the best times of year for fishing.  As shad move to more shallow areas the bass follow eating and “stocking” up for winter.    This scenario produces some very fun fishing opportunities as it allows for us kayak anglers to throw a lot of different baits that simulate shad.  I thought that it would be a great opportunity to highlight 5 fall fishing lures.  

While fall bass fishing is not limited to the following types of bait presentations I decided to focus on more swimming styles of baits than vertical or top water ones.   Vertical presentations tend to take away from the more fan casting and covering large amounts of water that I find very enjoyable this time of year.  So here are 5 different baits that I recommend during this fall bass fishing season.


rapala_dt_fat_bsdRapala DT Fat 3 – This crankbait produces a very aggressive wobble action and the square lip allows you to pull through and over cover looking for fish.  The square lip is very important as fishing shallow cover can really turn up the bite this time of year.



Rapala_Clackin_Rap_1Rapala Clackin’ Rap – the lipless crankbait is one of my go to baits most of the year but I really like the concept behind the clackin’ rap.   It has a steel ball and metal discs that create clackin effect went it moves.  Simply put, it’s one of the better lipless crankbaits on the market right now.





Strike King The Burner Spinnerbait – as mentioned before this is a great time of year for fan casting for bass.  This 2 blade spinner bait is awesome for covering a lot of water area and swims just under the surface.  It comes in five different colors including Sexy Shad.  




shadaliciousStrike King Shad-A-Licious – This is probably one of the most popular swimbaits on the market.  It comes in several different sizes and produces a great presentation.  I typically rig this with a weighted hook but you could also use on an open ball jig head.    


Boo-BoogieBooyah Boogie Bait – “Jiggling like it drank too many cups of coffee” this is a pretty cool bait that swims like and injured bait fish and has the flash of a spinnerbait. It really just dances like crazy on the retrieve and is really fun to fish with.
