Fishing in New England in September

Fishing in New England in September is awesome! The summer residents and tourists are gone, the lakes and ponds are vacant during the week and not that busy on the weekends.

Lake Agua Milpa, Mexico for Beauty and an Abundance of Bass!

Another Way to Fish

For easy freshwater fishing and a relaxing time on the water, try fishing a live minnow or small panfish. For some simple fishing from bank, bridge, pier, boat or even when wet-wading, hook the bait and carefully cast it into open water. Make the cast slowly so as to not snap the bait off of the hook.

Freshwater Mexico!

Let’s talk about fresh water for a change. Mexico has the best bass fishing in the world. Well, that’s what I think. There are three lakes that Charles and I fish. It is not uncommon for us to catch ten to twelve pounders in all of them. You fish them mostly the same way as you do anywhere with top water, crank baits, swim baits and the old standby, plastics.

Colorado pike respond to big swimbaits trolled on planer boards in April. In June, casting spinnerbaits becomes the rule. But for August and September rainbow trout surface feed on damselfly nymphs and the northern pike follow them.
