Big bass smashes Frog.

Recommended Posts

This is just nuts. A guy in the Florida everglades makes his own frogs and uses a kayak.  I trimmed the video because it did have him promoting his lures for sell and I did not want to get in trouble. I would give anything to have this happen to me. He does not land the fish but that blow up is the stuff dreams are made of.

That looked like a great white shark hitting a seal. :o  They never hit my lures like that.

I know man. I have seen great videos from the everglades. I watched a guy fishing a canal that was drying up and pull in a bass every cast. I will be getting a kayak and going soon.

I probably would have had a heart attack, I get on edge and my heart races even when tiny ones hit it near my kayak.

Watch the weather in Florida - if they have an extended dry spell - go - mortgage the house, borrow of your kids college fund but go - the canals in south  Florida in a dry year are unbelievable - many times clients had over 200 fish in a half day charter.

This is one of our local guys that always goes to the everglades. Is this what you are talking about? This video is insane.

You would love Florida bassin. The gators can get annoying but They usually leave you be unless you take too long to bring in a fish. lol

I am pretty sure that is Ken Daubert who makes the Capt Ken's clone frogs.  The only reason why i say that though is because i know he is from florida and he uses spinning tackle.

Yes it is. He is well knows around my area. I want to order a frog from him. They are pricey but handmade and very nice.

Good gravy man, that's a fantastic blow up.

At Lake Gaston on vacation, threw a big jitter
bug and got a fantastic hit, no take. I threw a
wacky worm to follow quickly (hey @A-Jay 
they really do work) and hauled in the little fella.

I dream of big bass hitting topwater baits....

I want to come fish North Carolina so bad. A guy on YouTube has videos of him fishing these roadside creeks in a place called Blane. I think its called Reedy Creek. but just catching bass after bass in the middle of the day.

I wish I could say Gaston has been that awesome.
Can say that I've had ZERO skunks, which is good.
My youngest scored the biggest fish, a 6-7 pound
catfish. Weighed on my Boga, but my old eyes could
only find the major marks in low light, alas.

I learned a pattern from an old timer that works here,
according to him, but I didn't have success fishing it
tonight.

Was in a smaller body (Lizard Creek) but probably 
would have had better luck on the main body with
deeper waters.

Ah well. We will likely vacation here again. Has been
absolutely wonderful. Fantastic lake. I'd love to find
a guide and get properly schooled to fish this body 
of water.

I have money saved for a guide for Okeechobee. Thinking about buying a Jon boat or a kayak and just going by myself. I have never fished a fresh body of water that big. Everyone here always talks about Okeechobee. Its like the bass fishing mecca around here.

I can tell you that I avoided as much of the
"big water" as I could here at Gaston. Sticking
close to shore and so on. Even so, there were
plenty of knuckleheads who disregarded the
"No Wake" zones even when they looked right
at me.

PFD 100% of the time!!

Okeechobee is on my bucket list. I'd definitely
hire a guide there.

As it gets cooler the boat traffic will fall off. I see you are in Virginia, Ever herd of Harbor mills reservior? My best friend is a trucker and said he slayed them when he fished it.
