Want to catch more fish this Fall? Squarebill crankbaits are an awesome way to catch bass as temperatures cool. Which baits? What speed? Are there special colors that get bit more than others? Of course! Come along as we dive in-depth with squarebill crankbaits and cover everything you need to know as you head out on the water to catch Fall bass!

The squarebill crankbait should have a place in every angler’s arsenal. Whether you fish on the bank or from a boat it has an innate ability to come through shallow cover and trigger a feed response in lurking bass. Today’s video is all about learning how to fine-tune the technique to perfectly match your conditions.

You need to start paying closer attention to speed, adding bite triggers into your retrieve cadence, adjusting diving depth by switching between baits in your arsenal, and which colors get more bites this time of year. You can go down the bank chucking and winding or you can take it to the next level and start triggering BIG bites consistently. Its totally up to you!

Below is a breakdown of all the baits and equipment in the video. All of the links go directly to Tackle Warehouse where you can see detailed photos and descriptions of each item. We’ve included our favorite baits, colors, hook upgrades when applicable, as well as the exact rods and reels we use. We even included a budget-friendly combo that excels for the price.
