Brandon Stoker:
Welcome back everybody to another episode on the MONSTERBASS Channel. My name is Brandon Stoker, and in today's episode, we're going to be going over, My Top Five Late Fall Bass Fishing Lures. Like I said, thank you all for tuning into another episode on the channel.

Brandon Stoker:
If you guys love tips and tricks videos about bass fishing lures, what gear to use, and things like that, different tips of where to throw a lure, and when to throw it, and things like that, I highly recommend you guys subscribe to the MONSTERBASS Channel. We are constantly putting out content that covers all the lures that you guys are receiving in your box, and things like that. So, if you guys are interested in that type of content, make sure you guys subscribe to the channel.

Brandon Stoker:
So guys, I run a YouTube channel called Wisconsin Wildman, and on that channel I do a ton of bass fishing and things like that guys, and I actually use quite a few of the lures that I just got in my recent MONSTERBASS Box, and the lures that I'm going to show here today. I'll a fall bass fishing video. So I take a lot of these Lures out there and I go hit some smallies, so if you guys are interested in that, the link to my channel will be linked down below in the description.

Brandon Stoker:
All right. So let's jump into it guys. What are BASS doing in the late fall? So in the late fall guys, those water temps are really going to drastically drop off. Here in Wisconsin we're down into the forties already. I'd probably assume we're in mid 40s, if not to the low 40s at this point with our water temp. And this is a great time of the year to hammer some big BASS. Now, I'm not talking about going out there and catching dink after dink, after dink, I'm talking about catching big giant Bass guys.

Brandon Stoker:
This is the absolute perfect time of the year to do that. There's not a lot of anglers out on the water. A lot of them are switching over to hunting this time of the year. And they're also, it's pretty cold out. A lot of guys are afraid to get out there and they don't want to get into that brunt of the cold. So if you guys can beat through the cold and go out there, I guarantee you guys can hook into some absolute giants.

Brandon Stoker:
This is also my favorite time of the year to really target small mouth Bass. So all of these lures in here guys are really geared, towards the fall time really dropping off in that water temp. And we'll go through these lures from the warmest weather in the fall time down to the lowest weather. So without further ado, we're going to jump into that first one.

Brandon Stoker:
So my first lure guys is going to be a spook. A walking beta of some sort. This one came in my MONSTERBASS Box actually, this spook, I think it's a spook junior. Now I really liked this color. And I really liked this when those water temps are in that 55 degree water temp. This works really, really well. Those small mouth, those bass in general, start to push up shallow and push those bait fish up shallow.

Brandon Stoker:
And when you're in that mid 50s, this still works really, really well. It's one of my favorites. I really like a walking bay or even a top water popper as well. But when it's in that 55 degrees, this is when I'm going to burst out this sucker because those bait fish are still up shallow. They're still really seeking and chasing. And this is really a good bait. I love the rattles in it, it really gives off that wounded bait fish presentation. So, once I'm in that warmer weather in that late fall, I'm still going to throw around some top water.

Brandon Stoker:
Moving into the next one guys, that's going to be switching over to a crankbait. Now, we have a square bill crankbait. This is actually the MONSTERBASS Crankbait. And I use this in my video on my channel and I actually absolutely hammered some really nice ones off of this square bill. But more importantly, MONSTERBASS sent us in these crankbaits from like, I think there's like vicious lures if I'm not mistaken, I could be wrong on that. But this crankbait right here absolutely was killing them. I was using a black and chartreuse one, that I have tied onto a rod right now, but this is another color.

Brandon Stoker:
But, these crankbaits are absolutely killer for bass in the late fall because a lot of those bass like to hang tight to the bottom and things like that, but they're still encouraged into chasing. So if you get into that 50 degree water temp, high 40s, 48 to 50 degrees, somewhere in there, a crankbait works great. You want one, in my opinion, with loud rattles, and when this thing is just bouncing off the bottom and those fish are kind of stuck, a little closer to the bottom because of the fact that they're getting a little more lethargic with those water temps dropping off, crankbaits are great.

Brandon Stoker:
So if you have a square bill's really good for shallow rock, which you can catch them absolute tanks off of that. And then you have this one that dives a little bit deeper. So crankbaits are definitely a go-to and something that MONTER BASS is always having in their box, especially in the fall time.

Brandon Stoker:
So now water temps guys, we're getting down into, like I said, the mid 40s at this point. So mid 40s and down these last three are going to be the ones that I use in that aspect. The first one is going to be a half ounce or three-eighth ounce, football finesse jig. So this is actually a three-eighth ounce football finesse jig. I have a little crawfish on there. You can see that the presentation is a little bit smaller, but what I like about this is, like I said before, those fish are relating to the bottom a little bit more, and this is a perfect presentation where it's not too big of a presentation where they're going to be like, "Man, I don't have the energy for that." Because these fish, are going to start to get a little more lethargic at this time.

Brandon Stoker:
So they want something small and something easy to eat. So a finesse jig is a perfect presentation. Crawfish is something that they feed on all year round. And this is pretty much a lure that you can toss all year round, just dragging it across the bottom I guarantee you, if this comes in front of a bass at any point, they're going to scoop it up and you're going to have a good fish on, and it's a great way to target those big fish in the fall time.

Brandon Stoker:
So now we're getting into that really cold, cold weather, where we're getting down into the 40s. We're just sitting right around that 40 degree water temp, sometimes even colder. That is when a jerkbait is going to be awesome. So Messer, I know that MONSTERBASS is collaborating with Messer Baits and they did a custom pattern. So a jerkbait, this jerkbait that I got in my box works really well. Otherwise, I really like gold or chrome jerk baits, but really how you want it fish a jerkbait when you're getting into that kind of temperature, is you want to give it a few pops, and let it sit. Sometimes you only want to give it a one or two pops. So you're just going to pop, pop, and you're going to really going to let this thing just sit. A suspended jerkbait where it just sits there. It's just floating barely, rattles. You want rattles in there.

Brandon Stoker:
I really like this gold olive type color, and a chrome color in the really sunny days, because I feel like it just gives off that good flash when it darts through the water column. But I really think one that rattles, that good chrome, that good gold olive color is really, really good.

Brandon Stoker:
But like I said, don't work this thing too fast when you're down into that water temp, when it is that cold, when you're in that 40 degree water temp, even colder, those fish are really starting to get lethargic. They are not going to be really hammer and hammer and hammer. Small mouth might be, smallmouth bass for sure, they're still pretty aggressive in that colder water, but you really want to slow this down and give it a pop or two, let it sit. Really let it sit.

Brandon Stoker:
Sometimes, some guys I know you can let this thing sit like 30 seconds. So they'll just count out 30 seconds in their head before they pick this thing up. So like I said before guys, really make sure that you got rattles in there and really work this thing slow. Don't get impatient, just keep working it slow and I guarantee you it's going yo drive some bites for you.

Brandon Stoker:
Now, my all time favorite technique come the late fall guys. When I'm down into those cold water temps, this is the number one bait that I love to toss when it's super cold. I think it just does a really good job at giving off that perfect size presentation that those fish want to see. And it's also a great way to just fish in general, especially for smallies and that's going to be a Ned rig. So I love using a 16th to eighth ounce net head. So this is actually an eighth ounce net head. And then I use a green pumpkin Ned bait. Now I don't really care about what type of green pumpkin Ned bait I'm using. I'll take a Cinco and pinch it off if I have to, I know this is the Z Man Hula Stick. I think this one is, but green pumpkin is my all time favorite color in the fall time. But like I said, 16th ounce to eighth ounce ned head.

Brandon Stoker:
Now what's really fun about this is you're catching, usually you could catch some absolute tanks of small mouth in the late fall like I said before, when you're tossing something, this small, you're using a medium light fast action rod for the most part, and it's really fun to fight fish off of this. And the great thing about a Ned rig is that it's going to catch you a lot of fish. You might catch some small ones, but you're going to catch some big ones as well. And it's really fun to fight them off that setup. But I found that the Ned rig is just one of those that is a good tried and true method that always catches me fish in the late fall.

Brandon Stoker:
It's that perfect, little grub style presentation that just gets the fish going ballistic. So if you guys have never tried out a Ned rig, this is my all time favorite thing to use in the late fall. So I would highly, highly encourage you guys to do that.

Brandon Stoker:
