Fall Fishing

Walking Topwater Lures for Fall Bass


The fall fishing period is marked by cooling water temps and often falling water levels in reservoirs throughout the country (fall drawdown). Baitfish make a big shift from deeper offshore habitat, to the shallows during this time. Todd Faircloth, and many other top-tier bass pro’s fish walking-style topwater baits religiously during this baitfish migration in the shallows. A big-profiled and loud walking bait can be seen and heard from a distance, and perhaps offshore bass just showing up haven’t seen this bait for a while. Todd Faircloth provides his take on how to fish walking-style topwater lures for fall bass.
