Default Downsizing??

I keep reading about downsizing your baits in the fall and fishing slower. I can understand the slower part, but why downsize? It has always been my understanding that in the fall, most of the natural bait has grown up or have been eaten. So, go bigger. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts on this are?

I dont downsize, this time of year we have all different sizes of shad, from 3 inchers to 7 inchers. This is usually my best time of year to catch them on the biggest crankbaits you have.

Yeah in the fall I don't downsize either, I don't even truthfully slow down. The waster right now is still above 60 and to be honest with you my best bait during this time is the buzz bait. Not a slow bait at all.

Thanks everyone. I kind of thought it was a match the hatch kind of thing.
