After a stellar Elite Series campaign that saw him qualify for his 17th Classic, Central Texas native and 2008 Bassmaster Classic Champion Alton Jones makes his return to the broadcast. Cooler temps and shorter days mean that bass are moving into their fall patterns. Alton discusses what baits he transitions to and why, as well as where to consistently find fish in Sept/Oct. Does he fish faster or slower? Big baits or small? What about when bass start to suspend higher in the water column away from bottom related structure? Alton breaks it all down for us.

Last week I was fortunate enough to take two 9 foot alligators with Fin and Fowl Outfitters near Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge in Chambers County. Not only is the alligator hunting exceptional, but the early teal season in the Texas rice prairie is truly a destination trip for the serious waterfowler. You simply won’t find larger concentrations of blue wing teal in North America. Fin and Fowl Outfitters’ Brian Davenport drops in to discuss this amazing part of Texas that is ideal habitat for both teal and alligators. Put this combo hunt on your bucketlist if you haven’t already! I highly recommend it. (Brian and myself with a 9’6″ Texas lizard).
