In the summer, Lake Geneva is filled with tourists enjoying water sports and soaking in the sun. However, now that fall weather has arrived in Wisconsin, the lake is filled with fishermen trying to get lucky and catch a fish worth bragging about. For the best chance at scoring a trophy-winner this year, check out these three tips from your friends at Power Sports Rental Network.
1. Time It Right
Generally, when you head out to go fishing, you plan on spending hours out on the water. However, you want to make sure those hours count, so it’s important to choose the right time of day. In the summertime, fishermen typically head out in the early morning hours to catch the best fish. However, in the fall, it’s better to go during the middle of the day when the sun and temperature are at their highest points. The bass are more likely to bite during these warmer times of day than the cold mornings.
2. Use Big Baits
You’ve probably heard it before, but the fact remains that big baits catch big fish. This is especially true in the fall when the bass are preparing for winter. Because the fish know that winter is coming, their metabolism slows down and they prefer to eat one large meal instead of several small meals. So go big in the fall and catch a large bass who’s looking to make his energy count.
3. Take It slow
Finally, along with using big bait, you also want to make sure your bait is slow-moving. As we mentioned above, these large fish want to save energy, so they aren’t likely to chase down fast-moving bait. Try using a large spinner bait or jig that can be moved slowly on top of green vegetation. You’ll be able to keep the bait in the zone longer, further increasing your chance of getting a bite.
