Amazing how you get all kinds of answers, I would never think to throw a rattle trap at a time like that.

Anyway I would try something small if you can see the bass jumping throw a small popper, better yet try a small wacky worm.

Different anglers have different strengths! So no one answer is every the absolute "right" one!  ;)

For me, I'd thow a spinnerbait waking it. If that didn't produce, I'd go to a white buzzbait or a Spook or Spittin Image.

I've had times where this has happened and have thrown everything in the boat at them with no luck.

So I went out and bought a few small inline spinnerbaits (Vibrex) in silver and one in blue and silver. The only time I ever use these lures are if I see fish busting shad or if I'm on the river fishing for 12 inch fish.

Either situation these mostly forgotten about inline spinners work.

I know it's not a typical "bass bait" but it will put fish in your livewell when the going gets tough.

On my boat, whenever I encounter a "jump fishing" situation, I like to see that at least one

angler is fishing a topwater lure and at least one angler is fishing a subsurface lure.

Given my choice, I'll always elect to work the subsurface zone with a Rat-L-Trap

or Hopkins Spoon.

When birds are working and fish are breaking, they only mark the tip of the iceberg.

Like a bouncing ball, the jump is typically a pinpointed and highly mobile spot,

where young, energetic bass are charging into a baitfish school, called "balling the bait".

Under attack, the frightened baitfish soon decide that the atmosphere is now a safer

element than the hydrosphere, so they try to fly. Almost without exception however,

there'll be larger bass and less pressured forage lying beneath the ruckus on the surface.

Usually (not always) the angler using a subsurface lure will catch more larger bass.

From shore I'd fling out a weedless swim grub, 2-3", probably a natural shiner, smoke, or pearl color but with gold or silver flakes.

rapala floater

After what he said about the minnows nothing comes to mind better than this, I second it.

I third this notion. I throw the floater almost anytime i see bass jumping. I figure, even if they were jumping for bugs or something else, the rapala floater will get their attention if their still in a topwater ambush mode.

BronzEye frog ...black  

Why a frog :-?

Maybe the frog's trying to eat the minnows that the bass are feeding on, and the bass doesn't like it, so it eats the frog :-?

I think I would probably just stick with the minnow imitation, (I know that sounds crazy). ;D

He means Black Shiner, or Chrome Shad.. Torpedos are one of the very best topwaters I always have them with me.
