Hi everyone. Whart a great season of fishing this summer. My friend and I have been killing nice lagemouths and northerns all summer long on this small lake near us. We will be hitting it hard this week for probably the last time till spring. Anyone got advice for largemouths and northerns this late? Any and all advice would be appreciated. Thanks

Buzzbaits are working well for me too. Caught a nice 3 pounder on a small lake just yesterday.

I would start throwing baits that would allow you to cover vast amounts of water...crankbaits, spinnerbaits, lipless cranks and also in-line spinners...last weekend I was fishing shallow water with a Carolina Rig with french fry style plastic baits and did very well...I find that finding green weeds is fairly critical and covering water until you find areas that they are concentrated in... cool smiley

Hey Lex LeQuia,

I totally agree with Kevin about the need for green weeds. Find the deepest remaining green weeds that you can. Those will normally hold the largest sized largemouth and northerns as well as the largest numerical concentrations of them at this time of year.

As far as tactics....a slow rolled spinnerbait and a slow wobbling style crankbait are really good choices to start with. As the water temps drop below 50 degrees then the odds on favorite in terms of offerings would be a jig n' pig for largemouth and a 6 inch, or so, sucker minnow fished under a float, or on a large jighead, for the northerns. If you are in waters that have a good population of larger sized notherns available then the smaller sized muskie jerk baits can be good as well. I have had really good success on the small sized Bulldog, Reef Hawgs, Super Shad Raps, and Suicks.

However, the main key is to find those remainig green weeds... the deeper they are the better! They are the magnet that is concentrating the prey species and smaller fish there. This is of course what is consistently drawing in the larger species that you are looking for.

Good Fishing To Ya,

Jason "The Fisher" Pence
