Does it hang up a lot in the rocks
Also fall should mean bass feeding heavily on shad not craws?

There are tons of good baits for rip rap.
Buzzbait, Zara Spook, PopR, Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, RatLTrap, Red Eye Shad, Swim Jig, Swimbait to name a few. My favorite used to be the Spinnerbait but I tend to throw the Chatterbait most of the time now. But don’t think they are preferring Shad over Craws this time of year. My brother fished a tournament recently and fished mainly rip rap and at the end of the day he had a ton of pieces of Crawfish in the bottom of his livewell.

Square bill shad colored crank bait or a jerk bait will get it done.

I love to throw a deep diving crank bait chartreuse/blue back and bounce it off the rocks in the fall. Catch some real nice fish doing that.

I like a pre-Rapala wiggle wart on 4 lb line. Best action. Bounce it off as many rocks as you can before it’s gone for good.

The lake I fished Saturday...the fish were gorging on craws. I caught one that had a head and pincers sticking out of its throat.

Big rat or MS slammed parallel to the rocks in low light. 20-30 lbs test and a heavy swimbait or musky rod.

Most riprap bass are small? Why the heavy tackle and big lures?

I don’t fish for most bass. I fish for big bass.
