Fall is here. It's time to welcome back feeding bass, and I'm excited. As the water cools down and bait moves towards the backs of creeks, you need to adjust your strategy. These 5 baits are ideal for catching shallow bass during the fall feeding frenzy. The Best Fall Fishing Lures Fall fishing is all about the bait.  Find the bait, and you will likely find the fish.
