Jeremy Francis:
What's happening, guys? Fall is here. There's some awesome baits in this month's box. We're going to talk about the fall transition, some baits you should be throwing, including this one, in this video. Let's go.

Jeremy Francis:
All, right guys, the Monsterbass Box is loaded this month in the Regional Pro South Region to help you kids fish in the fall transition. But first, let's talk about what the fall transition is. We'll talk about one of the baits that's in there, and I'm also going to show you what's on my deck that I actually went out yesterday and caught fish with.

Jeremy Francis:
So first of all, let's talk about the fall transition. What does that mean? It means that the bass are transitioning from the deeper water in the summer to move more up shallow, but they're not all the way there yet. They're in that transition, just as it sounds, the fall transition. What causes that is as the water temperatures get cooler, bait fish move more shallow. So shad as the main type of bait fish, at least here in Texas. As it moves shallow, the bass are going to follow. Now, on their way in the transition, they're going to stop at different places, such as docks, creek channels. So they're not quite all the way there yet, but they're getting there. Good news. They're getting there. So in the meantime, you've got the transition.

Jeremy Francis:
So this month's box was packed full of baits for the fall, the fall transition, and even into winter. And one that I want to highlight is the Lucky Shad by Strike King. Now, keep in mind, bass are chasing bait that are this size or smaller, so that's three inches in size, and you'll notice a very slender profile and a very slender bill. What this causes is a very tight wobble action. So normally, your square bill is going to be really wide and erratic action. This is going to be a very tight action to mimic smaller prey and smaller bait fish. This bait dives anywhere between seven to eight feet. I've been throwing mine on probably about 14-pound fluorocarbon, so it doesn't get down all the way to eight feet. You can even throw it on a 17-pound fluorocarbon and it will go a little bit shallower, maybe five to six feet.

Jeremy Francis:
You can also add weight strips to the bottom, because this bait will float or come back up, so much like a normal crank bait. If you're digging it into structure cover and you hit something and stop, it will float back up. However, if you add a weight strip right here, it will cause this bait to suspend. But because of its size, its profile, its awesome color, and its tight action, it's a lure that you're going to want to tie on for the fall transition, because it does go down to eight feet. But then keep tied on all the way through the winter, because in those colder months that are coming, this is going to be a great bait to help you catch some fish.

Jeremy Francis:
All right, before we wrap up this video, I want to show you what I have tied on the lines on my deck right now, just to show you what I've been catching them on. So let's run through that real quick. Even though it's the fall transition, I'm still having a frog tied on. Now, this is the Blitz Lure Frog, a shad color, that came back in the April box, but it's a great presentation to still throw up shallow in those early mornings to get those bites.

Jeremy Francis:
I also have tied on a really cool-looking chatter bait. Now, this is a Thunder Cricket. So they came in the previous box, along with kind of a shad-color till. A little bit darker water, but that's sure to draw some bites up shallow.

Jeremy Francis:
And also, yes, this is a huge Shaky Head, but that is basically an eight-and-a-half-inch Shaky Head Worm, for some of those deeper water presentations. Also in darker color.

Jeremy Francis:
All right, so over on this side, one thing that I've really thrown a lot of this year is a Swim Jig. You'll see this is a little bit more of a natural color, kind of a shad presentation in white, with a smaller Paddletail. Also, for the early-morning bites, I would highly suggest a Spook or Topwater Walking Bait. This is the Heddon Spook Jr. Came in a Monsterbass box a few months ago.

Jeremy Francis:
Probably one of my all-time favorites is going to be a Paddletail Swim Bait on that under spin. This is such a great presentation. That small Willow Blade on the end, along with a Paddletail. Just looks like bait fish when you put the two together. Looks almost like a little school of them. I would highly recommend a clear color. You can also throw a Spinnerbait with small Willow Blades, as well. I would probably highly recommend those right now.

Jeremy Francis:
Around cover and timber, I'm still throwing a Big Texas Rig Worm. This is the Blitz Lures. I'm sorry, the Blitz Worm by X Zone Lures. It came in a box a couple months ago, but it stands up and floats. That's a shad color, but any type of red, purple, plum. All those colors work really well right now.

Jeremy Francis:
And then last, in shallower water, I'm going to throw a smaller Shaky Head. So you'll see more of a natural color of worm there. I'm going to throw that around some docks or up in shallow water, just because it's a little bit lighter weight and a little bit more of a finesse presentation.

Jeremy Francis:
One other one that I don't have tied on right now that I would also throw is obviously, that Lucky Shad. I didn't tie it on, just for the sake of holding it in this video. I've got my Crane Bait Rod in the box, and then also, I would potentially have tied on a big Umbrella Rig or an A Rig, with some small Willow Blades and Paddle Tail Swim Baits on there. You're going to crush them in the fall with an Umbrella Rig.

Jeremy Francis:
All right, guys, that's a wrap for this video of Monsterbass. The Regional Pro Box for September was loaded with baits to help you in the fall transition. Make sure you're subscribed to The Better Box. Also, man, great job, Monsterbass, picking out the Lucky Shad by Strike King, that awesome little presentation. Make sure you have this bait tied on, and keep it tied on for the fall and the winter. Such a great presentation and a great pick in this month's box.
