    Default Fall Bass fishing?

    Howdy Everyone,

    I was out at Ft. Loudon Lake early on Sunday morning for a special church service and noticed that the baitfish were getting hammered by the bigger fish. Yeah, it did make it a little harder to pay attention to the sermon.

    So I have a couple of questions. I assume that the bigger fish are Bass? Any suggestions on what type of streamers / flies I would use to go after these fish. Any information about fishing for these guys would be greatly appreciated.

    As always, thank you for your help.

    Over here in MS I have been using a yellow and chartreuse seaducer and it has been killer. I have bead chain eyes to give it a little weight. When I see the fish pounding the bank, I cast in there and strip it fast. I like this fly because it is light and and does not make a big splash when it hits the water. I am sure a clouser with bead chain eyes would work just as well. I tied up some Todd Wiggle Minnows and am going to give them a try this weekend. Good Luck

    Nun, my go to flies for bass large and smallies have been poppers, particularly black and yellow bee type patterns, i've bought a Rainy's rattlin' frog size 1/0, but no takers yet on it. My poppers run in sizes 6-8 up to 1-2. Also have had some luck with #1 size streamers. Dark greens and browns. Chartruse poppers are also great for panfish this time of year too. Good Luck to ya!

    Hey Mick, do think a clouser that i bought in PCB, Fl for the gulf would work on Bass? It's white and chartruse. What do ya think? Thanks.

    BP- They will work great! Chartreuse over white works really well on bass especially when they are schooling up the minnows. Have fun.
