There are days when bass roam far from their home base in a brushpile or weedbed, but more often, you've got to hit or penetrate the cover with your baits to catch fish.
Today, many successful fishermen take full advantage of current technology to efficiently record, organize and retrieve vital information that can pay big dividends in the present and future.
As days grow shorter and air temperatures become more comfortable, the water temperature drops and baitfish get more active. Throw in a cool rain and substantial cold front and the game is on.
An understanding of the fall movements of bass and the proper approach to taking advantage of that predictability will pave the way to consistent success.
