Top Bass Pro Shares His Favorite Bait For Catching Big Bass In November!
Finding that secret bait that imitates Shad at this time of the year can be tough. Kevin VanDam makes it easier for you as he gives you the details and tips on the best bait that hooks him the most bass in November.
With The Water getting cold and Bass chasing shad into the backs of creeks and having a feeding frenzy. This is your best chance to hook a big trophy Bass, and finding the perfect lure makes it that much easier.
November is one of the best months to be fishing. One of my favorite baits for this time of year when the water starts cooling down is the Red Eye Shad. Even down South, when the water begins cooling off, the bass may stop chasing spinner baits. But bass can’t leave the flat-sided Red Eye Shad alone. They have to eat it. The Red Eye Shad is one of the best cold-water baits ever made.
One of the most-effective ways to get a bite on the Red Eye Shad is to kill it and let it fall. When you kill the bait, and it starts to sink, the Red Eye Shad swims nose down, wiggling as it swims to the bottom. This is the only lipless bait with this action. The real key to catching bass in November on the Red Eye Shad is to rip it through grass, bounce it off a stump, a rock or a log and then let it fall. That’s when the bass will take it.
In November, I have the most confidence when I’m fishing the Red Eye Shad. I have an advantage over other fishermen in a tournament when I’m fishing this lure, and they’re not. I know the bass are biting the Red Eye Shad, not because of the action fishermen give this lure, but because of the action built into the lure. I fish all the colors of the Red Eye Shad, depending on water and weather conditions, but my favorite is the Sexy-Shad color.
