As we transition out of late summer and into early fall, the size of baitfish is increasing.

And game fish will dial in on a specific bait size profile depending on what time of year it is.

In the springtime, they key in on the smaller baitfish profiles.

During the summer, the bait starts to get larger.

And in the fall, baitfish are going to be the largest of the year!

Your topwater lures need to increase in size and make a ton of noise.

The big predator fish are going to look for high-calorie meals in the form of big baitfish.

If I’m fishing subsurface, I go with a much larger 5″ paddletail.

Here are the 3 lures I recommend to put in your arsenal:

No matter what lures you’re going to use, make sure you increase your profile size!

I have found that big lures are better in fall but I still pretty much use the same size that I used in summer because at least around here in northeast fl Jacksonville area I do see some medium sized bait as well and have found them in some of the stomach contents of fish I have filleted but as far as topwater are concerned a great one that is slightly bigger then the spook Jr (my main topwater plug) is the sitter v it is longer and has a slower glide then the sitter walk but that’s my preference and I still like my spinnerbait to plus for paddletails the live target slow roll shinier is hard to beat in likeness and size they make 3 sizes ranging from 3 to 6 inch size I add a rattle and always dye the tail chartreuse except in winter and early spring when the water hear finally clears a little

Great tips Wyatt. Curious why the low frequency noise on Topwater during fall? Bigger Topwater but quieter? Thanks

Not 100% sure, Jonathan, but I think Wyatt recommends lower “frequency,” not necessarily lower “volume.” That was my take, anyway. I’m just north of Clearwater and also getting better results with the Bomber here.

Thank you for explaining this.

Good stuff Wyatt! I’m already seeing that trend over here in Florida. Big baits are out producing the smaller ones. Should be even more apparent the later in the season we get.

One more topwater you should look at for the fall is the Rattlin Spook. It’s larger and louder than the Spook Jr and I find it works well on those windy fall days.

Looks like Texas has been good to you by the looks of some of those fish!

Agree Pat. I’m in SW FL. Pine island area. Fish have not been appreciating my smaller lures!

Pat, what would you recommend as a wake bait right now?

I recently was using 5″ slam shady, but found that they kept biting off the tail and no confirmed strikes. Any suggestions? (Not so with the smaller SS.)
