As both air and water temperatures fall as summer transitions to autumn, bass feeding patterns change.
Being aware of these changes and being able to modify your techniques can keep you consistently successful as the top feeding time of the year arrives.
Let’s start with some ideas on how bass respond as they prepare to feed more often and more aggressively than they have in months.
The warm, sometimes hot water in midsummer slows the fish down. It makes them sluggish and lethargic.
As the water cools when fall approaches, they respond by becoming more active and more receptive to certain bait presentations.
