Had a very fun evening on the reservoir right near my house. I picked up well over a dozen fish, mostly 14-16". One fished taped out at 20", and fat! What a fish! All fish came on a green/chartreuse wacky Senko (surprise surprise). 

 

I spent the last hour before dark frogging. I don't know what my problem is, but I can't seem to buy a fish on a frog. I've read many articles, and have tried several different frogs, rigs, and retrieves. I know there are frogs in there because I see and hear them all the time. I think the bass on this reservoir are racist against frogs. Any help?

Try fishing the frog near heavy vegetation during lowlight periods, such as sunrise, sunset, and cloudy days. Nighttime is also a good time to fish a frog lure.

I don't know what reservoir you're on but I fish in VA a lot. Lake Gaston in particular. I'd look for main lake islands or points and hit the shallow vegetation near the current breaks.  Love me some frog action.

I'm in Yorktown, a couple hours from Gaston. Plenty of vegetation on this reservoir. The water does get warm here. It is commonly in the 90's on many days. Perhaps the fish stay in the deep and only go shallow and into the mats after dark. That's my guess.

I've also been fishing the James River quite a bit lately.  I love fishing the Cypress trees.  I've had more luck finding them on wood than in the pads recently on the rivers around Richmond. Happy Hunting!
