Fall is a great time of year for fishermen. The feeding activity of fish picks up, making them easy pickings for the fishermen who pursue them. I’ve fished the upper bay tributaries for a couple of decades and found that it is not uncommon to catch a largemouth bass and a striped bass within feet of each other, a few casts apart, and on the same lure. You may find this box similar to last month’s; however, these baits have an appeal to both species.
