Colder nights and dropping water temps are turning many of southern Ontario reservoirs Smallmouth Bass into feeding frenzies!
Some of the best reservoirs have public access and good launch facilities in both the Hamilton and Grand River Conservation Authorities.
Gabor Horvat who loves to fish smaller reservoirs is enjoying the seasons best Smallmouth Bass fishing just casting crankbaits along shorelines.
Many reservoirs lover their water levels in the fall which can make launching boats challenging. Some also remove the shoreline docks near the boat launches but either is stopping dedicated anglers from getting out.
Gabor and his friends have been getting all of their bass cranking medium-diving crankbaits that have a tight, natural swimming baitfish action in 2-10′ water.
Fall Smallmouth Bass feed heavily before water temperatures start to approach 4C. Most are beautifully colored and have plump bellies.
One of the top crankbaits to use in the fall is either the Shad Rap #5 or #7 in natural baitfish or perch color. A slow and steady retrieve is best.
