Finally, it’s trying to turn Fall, it’s something I
have been waiting for and I’m sure a lot of you
guys have been also. I’m starting to catch a few
more good fish on topwater, my favorite of
course is the Lucky Craft Gun Fish and Sammy!
But I always have a buzzbait and other style top
water nearby. You have to let the fish tell you
what they want. Normally shad patterns are
what the bass are looking for here on Kentucky
lake.

Look for gravel bars and rocky points for fish
feeding on gizzard shad in these areas.  I love
throwing top water on these areas. If its windy
then fish a spinnerbait, chatterbait and a 1.5 or
2.5 square bill on these bars.

A second pattern for me is fishing channel
banks off the main lake with a ZOOM Mag Trick
worm. I’m fishing it on a ¾ ounce Pro Tungsten
Carolina rig and a ¾ ounce wobble head.

With this cool weather we are supposed to get I
will also fish a rattling bait like Lucky Crafts LV
500 chrome and blue, ghost minnow and
chartreuse shad.  I will fish it on the same rocky
bars, main lake flats, and in ditches leading to
shallow flats. You’re looking for a reaction strike
when fishing this bait this time of year, so fish it
fast and I will use 15, 17lb line. I will use
monofilament if I’m fishing real shallow.
Monofilament will help keep my bait up, it’s a
more buoyant line than fluorocarbon. Also, by
using 15 to 17lb line its even more buoyant than
say 10 or 12. These little changes can make a
big difference in catching fish and not catching
fish.
