Bait Casting for Bass
To the writer it seems that, above all other methods of angling for black bass, bait-casting is to be preferred both for sport and results in fall fishing for bass. In both lakes and streams, the bass, both the large- and small-mouth, as above noted, are now in the shallower portions of lake and stream, on the bars and in the riffles, a condition decidedly favorable for bait-casting, particularly so to the bait-caster who prefers the use of the various top-water baits. With the coming of cool water the fish gain a new lease of life, an accession of activity and pugnacity, and are not at all the same fish which, in the tepid water and sultry atmosphere of July and August, required lengthy and super-skillful teasing to make them rise. The bait-caster may confidently rely for success upon any of the accepted casting baits, either surface or sinking, and the ordinary trolling spoon or single-hook fly-spoon, used in the same manner, are very successful in the fall months. The angler should look for his fish along the shelving lake shores and on the bars, and, in the streams, on point, bar, or in the riffles.
