Andy Montgomery explains what the fall transition means for fishing the Southeast and details five essential lures you need to take full advantage of the season.
When I think about Fall fishing in the Southeast, I think about one thing: Shad. I want all Shad imitating lures. Shad will be migrating to the banks, creeks, the big coves, and the pockets. I want to imitate that. What five baits would I want to do that? Here they are:
On those windy, cloudy days, when you need that flash to draw in the strike, there is nothing better than the Tour Grade Spinnerbait.
One of my favorite all-time baits is the Thunder Cricket. I love this one when it's bright and sunny. Great for target fishing and fishing in a lot of shade.
This is one that not a lot of people do because we are so used to cranking the KVD 1.5. Man does this thing shine in the fall. I've caught a lot of big fish on this KVD 1.0 Crankbait because this little crankbait is deadly in the Fall.
