Maumee River Smallmouth
Cotton Cordell square bill crank baits are the ticket for the smallmouth bass out on the river this week. The river level is still very low so you can get to all your favorite spots easily.Â As we get closer to fall cool downÂ heavy pre-winter feeding makes it a great time to look for your personal best on the river.Â Â In the fall, I like areas where they have close access between deep and shallow water because they move up and down when they get warmer days and colder days. Bigger baits will get you bigger bites, especially during the fall feeding frenzy. Local forage has a strong bearing on productivity , but across the board, the largest smallmouth will typically skip chasing thousands of smaller baits, in favor of targeting oneÂ bigger meal. Remember, smaller fish will fall for just about anything they can catch, but the big smallmouth bass are more picky and, therefore, require a bit more stragedy and meals worth their effort.
