Crushed the confidence session

Recommended Posts

I decided I was tired of having a box of topwaters in my backpack because I was supposed to. I never throw topwater. Never had confidence in it. So today I got up stupid early and headed out with my tack, determined to not throw another bait until I caught a limit. It was overcast, humid, sun had just come up but hidden behind the clouds, and it was dead calm with stained water. I tied on the lucky craft gunfish in black with yellow spots. It took a while, but once my first bite I couldn't stop if I wanted to. The first blow up missed, I followed up with a senko and belly weighted jackall rhythm wave, nothing. It didn't take long for the next blow up though. In total I landed 6 or 7 bass in about the first hour or so... man those topwater bites get the juices flowing. I had such a blast that I'm swapping the line on my worm rig from YZH to Big Game so I can walk the dog easier.

 

I'm hooked. Next.... the whopper popper and buzzbait.

Oh man, if you think walking the dog is addicting then you need to get a heavy rod, some 50lb braid, and a hollow-body frog.  I love my Zara Spooks but those frogs are the coolest thing in plastic.  Congrats on a great morning!

Also try some horny toads in shallow water/grass. It's just awesome seeing a wake coming to intercept the toad.

Get a 110 Whopper Plopper and for weeds make a Homemade Teckel Frog (paddle tailed frog) and you’ll have topwater covered.

Looks like I need to spend some time frog fishing 😂 I've been considering getting another 7'6" heavy and rigging with braid for punching and flipping. Seems like it would make a good rig to have around for frogs and big ploppers! Throwing frogs on my jig rod with 15lb YZH was painful.
