Everglades Top Water "catching"

Recommended Posts

This week the top water bass bite has been strong in the glades. My bait of choice this week has been a JD's Custom Baits Frog. Earlier this week we had multiple fish over 6 pounds and today was more of the same. My friend Dan Bieniek, co owner of JD's Custom Baits was with me today. He was field testing one of his new frog colors. I was using a june bug JD's frog. We got hit with a good rain at first light, but as the rain ceased Dan busted the first of many fish over 4#'s. It was just a few ounces shy of 8#'s.

An hour later he nailed a 6#'er.

I had a monster tight and taking drag. He jumped and cleared the water by 2 ft. before spitting the hook at me. Even though I did not get him to the boat it was one of the best strikes and jumps I have ever had by a bass. We caught alot more bass before noon and then bolted deep into the backcountry. We were super skinny, even the trolling motor was blowing up a mud trail. The bass were stacked in the trail and on hard feed. We picked up more than 15 bass from 2-4 #'s before heading back out into deeper water for the afternoon feed. Now I had alot of bass and some 4#'ers in the boat but so far a real good bass had eluded me. I was working a frog in a 10 ft. from me I see a good bass tracking my frog. Four feet from the boat I killed the frog and he swallowed and under and around the boat he went. 6# on the Boga.

A few more fish and we pulled the plug.

My buddy Lars and I fished this weekend. He had never caught a bass and was really ithcing to get a fish. We worked frogs in heavy cover all day. There were alot of nice fish caught. He boated 2 real good fish.

Beautiful fish. Seems like the top water bite is in full swing. I've been doing very well with it too.

Perhaps we should have a member outing before the weather gets too hot. I propose south end of Lox in the next week or so.

Sounds like a good plan
