BIG Bass on Chickamauga! Fall Bass Fishing Has Begun!!

September 23, 2020 118 No Comments


Tim is on a mission to catch a big bass! He’s on the water early, armed with topwater and a chatterbait. Come along for the fun! Watch as he adapts to changing conditions, fine tunes the pattern, and catches some really nice Chickamauga bass! Fall is prime time to catch quality fish as they feed up before Winter so make the time, head to the lake, and catch a big one of your own. 

When Tim set out he was searching for an early morning topwater bite. He had a plan but he stayed open minded, paying attention to his surroundings. It didn’t take him long to realize there was no surface activity this morning. Taking the cue from nature he dropped down to the bottom with a chatterbait and got the bite he was looking for! When you’re on the water its important to pay close attention to your surroundings at all times. Every time you hit the water you’re surrounded by clues that will help you dial in the pattern. Keep your eyes open, don’t be afraid to adapt, and you’ll start catching fish more consistently. 

Once Tim ran in to surface activity he switched back to topwater and was able to capitalize on some really nice bass with the popper. As the activity died off, the dropshot was clutch to finish out the day. Below is a breakdown of the baits and equipment Tim used throughout the day. We’ve even included an all-around budget combo that you could use for the chatterbait and light flipping.
