For the third installment of this series discussing my favorite fall bass fishing baits, we’re going to be talking about the small spinnerbait. You can check out the first two baits by clicking these links: Lipless Crankbaits 1/4-ounce Buzzbaits When I say small spinnerbaits, I’m referring to the overall profile, not necessarily the weight.

About Shaye Baker
Shaye Baker started fishing with his dad in Alabama as soon as they could find a life jacket small enough to fit him. Competing with his father in local tournaments, Shaye quickly found a hunger for competitive bass fishing. He furthered his fishing career at Auburn University helping to establish the Auburn University Bass Fishing Club. While at Auburn, Shaye served as the President of the club and qualified to fish on the traveling team amassing six Top 5 finishes including two 3rd place finishes in consecutive FLW College Fishing National Championships. While beginning to dabble in the world of outdoor journalism, Shaye continued to fish semi-pro events finishing in the Top 5 in the Bassmaster Opens, FLW Costa Series and BFLs. Finding himself at a crossroads, Shaye chose to put down the rod and pick up the pen and camera to focus on his career in outdoor journalism. Shaye has had work featured in Bassmaster Magazine, FLW Outdoors Magazine, B.A.S.S.Times and the Japanese bass fishing magazine Basser. Shaye has also had work featured on ESPN and Wired2Fish.com, FLWfishing.com and Bassmaster.com. While working with B.A.S.S., Shaye initiated and spearheaded their GoPro division which brought more video coverage to the fans than had ever been done before in competitive fishing. After his tenure with some of the best companies in the business, Shaye identified a need for competitive fishing where participation didn’t cost a fortune. By founding UPLOADED, the Online Fishing Series, Shaye established a free tournament series where anglers could film their fish catches and upload their videos to compete against other anglers for prizes.

In a previous article, I talked about one of favorite fall bass fishing baits, a lipless crankbait. Well, another favorite of mine this time of year is a ¼ ounce buzzbait. It’s a bait that I rarely throw any other time of the year but has a way of bringing a big one to the […]
The fall is almost here. Cool days and cold nights are right around the corner and with that a reawakening of the shallow waters that have been boiling here in the south these last few months. As the water temperatures drop, the shad will rise to the surface and make their way back into the […]
A chatterbait and spinnerbait are often thought of as interchangeable. At first glance, that’s understandable and certainly true to an extent. While both do mimic baitfish and attract bass primarily with vibration and flash, there are still some situations where one works better than the other. So, let’s dive into the chatterbait vs spinnerbait conversation… […]
Small swimbaits are one of the most effective baits for targeting spots, largemouth, and smallmouth in almost any part of the water column throughout the year. MLF Bass Pro Tour pro, Brandon Palaniuk, breaks down when and how he targets all three species of bass with this bait. Does Bait Selection Differ for Smallmouth, Spots, […]
So I recently dove head over heels into kayak fishing. You can read all about my first month in a kayak here. I’m loving it so far. I think partly because it’s so new to me, but also because it’s relatively new overall in the bass fishing world and definitely growing at an incredible pace. […]
So I’m doing something kind of silly this weekend. I’m entering a $1,500 pot tournament on Lake Martin with a $130 entry fee. Not seeing the silly part yet? Well, I’ll be in my kayak… there you go. For those of you who keep up with my content on here and on my social media […]
So you want to go fishing on a fishery you haven’t been to in a while, perhaps ever. How do you maximize the effectiveness of your time on the water? I get this question a lot on social media in some form or another. I’ve had people ask, “How do you prep for a one-day […]
It’s been about a month since I finally jumped headfirst into a kayak. I thought it would be good to talk a little about where my heads at and how kayak fishing has measured up to my expectations so far, so without further ado, here’s my kayak fishing review. Kayak Fishing Review: My Transition to […]
I decided to fish a little pot derby out of my kayak a couple of weeks ago. We have a weekly Wednesday nighter from 6 to 10 PM on Yates Lake here in central Alabama. At the time I was fishing out of Tea Cup, the Sun Dolphin Journey SS I bought from Tractor Supply […]
