An excellent adjunct to the fall hunting seasons is fall fishing. Anglers do not have to possess boats and all that goes with them to enjoy some great fishing.
The key factor is finding an area with abundant shoreline access. Scout the area for clues as to promising locations of fish. Natural vegetation, manmade structures and natural structure are often keys to good fish habitat.
Most bodies of water have forage fish. They can be minnows, shad, shiners or any number of other fish and crustacean. The big predator fish movement follows the aquatic forage. In early fall, they tend to move into the shallows and coves to find warmer water. The predators follow them. The action seems to move near the bank.
Promising locations include such areas as may be windblown and those areas near the entrance to bays and coves. A good location is one made for an ambush.
Veteran boat less fishermen obtains maps of the areas they plan to fish. On the maps they mark the location of structure, vegetation and depths of water. They also search out natural situations such as overhanging branches, fallen trees, submerged timber and flooded brush.
Man-made structures also provide fish habitat. This includes marinas, docks, deriving platforms, rip rap, spillways and dams. One angler of reports he has an old refrigerator marked on his map. He claims to have taken some big bass off that appliance.
Areas where streams and rivers enter or exit lakes and ponds attract predator fish. They use the adjacent structure for concealment and then move to the faster water to feed. Eddies in rivers and streams serve a similar purpose. Continue reading here – https://dongasaway.wordpress.com/2016/09/15/fall-fishing-action-moves-to-the-shore/
