What's your hottest fishing catching lure? The one you mastered with every
presentation. So which lure and which presentation has earned you a PHD in success.

Mine is the BPS XPS TOPNOCKER. I give it three twitches with the rod tip and a pause. If I get strikes and misses I adjust the pause to a longer one. This lure by far is easy to use.
The fish are out there just waiting for you to throw the right lure along with the correct presentation so why are you still here?
Motivation is the key to success.....
Remember on a bad day just throw the lure you never tried yet.....

This year it's been the North Star Brown Craw jig with a Falcon Lake Rage Craw. This combo has been the best producing so far. A close 2nd would have to be the Green Gizzard Shad 4S from Strike King.

Over the past month, my best bait has been my home made jika rigs (roughly + or - 1/2 oz in weight) combined with some soft plastic, ZOOM Brush Hogs and YUM Zellemanders have worked the best.

This year it has been a hollow body frog. Once I realized that it can be pulled through just about anything and not hang up, I started playing with different ways to bring it in.

Rage Craw. Either on a Tx Rig, or as a jig trailer.

I've had more success on a lipless crank this year than any other lure. I thought the lipless bite would die down in the summer, but it remained hot.

Toss up between a Netbait T-Mac (Bama Craw) rigged on a 1/4 Shake2 or a KVD 2.5 Sexy Shad. I caught an 8lb smallie on the 2.5, but the bulk of my fish have been coming on the T-Mac.

4" white Zoom fluke, T-rigged with a small finish nail embedded in it for weight.  Bass, 'gill, turtles, frogs, and even ducks smash it.  Stupid ducks.

This summer, although slow, I have to say has been the hollow body frog. My fairly new avatar pic was caught on a frog last month.

90% of my casts this summer have been with a Spro Bronzeye Frog in the color Red Ear.  Once you catch a fish on a Frog its hard to put it down. Ive become so much better at waiting to set the hook that I have a erally good hook up ratio now.

I'm with everyone else who said frog.  Black and red Booyah Padcrasher has really been producing well for me. 


I've made a point to try more techniques this year, but the frog continues to be the ticket.

My hottest lure that I feel like I mastered and that has always been my go to has been the spinnerbait, but if you are talking about just this year so far it has been the swim jig!! I make a swim jig in a color I call green gill and that bait with a River Rock swim grub on the back has done the most damage so far.
