Hank Parker’s Fall Fishing Tips | Bass Fishing

Glenn: Hey, folks. Glenn May here with BassResource. com, and
I’m here with Hank Parker. We’ve been out fishing for Hank Parker’s Outdoors
TV show, and we’re stopping for another weeklytip from Hank Parker. This one Hank, this week’s tip or question
actually comes from Ryan Fitzpatrick fromNew Orleans, and he wants to know what’s the
best way to catch bass during the fall. Hank: The fall of the year, one of my favorite
times to fish, you know, and it interfereswith my deer hunting a little bit, but I love
to fish in the fall. And, you know, it all depends on where you
are, but shad, really if that’s the primarybaitfish and throughout the south and down
around New Orleans, of course, you got a lotof things happening there. You got a lot of coastal influx on that brackish
water, but those fish tend to migrate towardthe backs of the pockets. And that’s a pretty standard procedure for
a bass to do almost anywhere. Now, it’s a little bit different in tidal
water. Tidal water, those fish don’t change and go
to the back of the pockets like they do inflat waters. So, you are dealing with a little bit different
circumstances. In the fall of the year, if I were fishing,
let’s say you were fishing the MississippiRiver and fishing down around Venice, not
too far, maybe an hour drive from New Orleans,those fish will just get more aggressive. They won’t necessarily move to the back of
the pockets like they would on Lake Guntersvilleor like they would on Lake Wylie or Lake Norman. They will not necessarily move to the back
of the pockets, but they will get more aggressiveand they will get shallower, and they tend
to suspend more. As that water temperature starts to cool off,
those fish will get more aggressive towardsthe topwater bait. You catch more on a lipless type crankbait,
it’s a great, great fall bait for tidal waterfishing. So I think what happens mostly in that tidal
water is the fish just get more aggressive,and they start to suspend up off the bottom. So you catch them on a more of a variety of
suspending type baits, crankbaits, jerkbaits,lipless crankbaits, top water opposed to all-plastic
worms down in the grass like you would inthe summertime. Glenn: Well, Ryan, I hope that answers your
question. For more tips and tricks, visit Hank Parker’s
