Baitfish push shallow during the fall months with bass in hot pursuit. In these situations, KVD opts to fish fast with horizontal lures like spinnerbaits as seen in this video. A great follow-up lure to spinnerbaits and crankbaits is a subtler soft jerkbait fished fast. VanDam shows us his preferred rigging of the popular 5'' Strike King Caffeine Shad, and how to work the lure. You definitely want to see this, because it's likely more aggressive than you'd expect.
