topwater with no pads/mats/vegetation?

Recommended Posts

I've always thrown my spro bronzeye frog around pads and mats, but the ponds I'm fishing in SC right now are rather newly stocked and well manicured, and have no topwater vegetation.  The only topwater bite we have been able to get is on a black buzzbait at night, but I'd really love to get one of these hawgs on topwater before I leave.  Any advice?

Try using a popper... They always pull through for me when I'm fishin topwater without cover

Pop-Rs are good, and you may also try a floating rapala. Pull it about a foot, then pause long enough for it to surface, then repeat. That will catch every fish that swims. My wife has kicked my butt with this too many times.

If you want to throw a topwater, the guys are right on with the Pop-R type baits and the Rapala's.

How about a floating trick worm in pink or white?  Fish it weedless, like a snake in the water, and see if they are interested.

A Zara Spook or Baby Spook may work, too, as will a Heddon Tiny Torpedo.

Give 'em a try and see what those bass want to eat.  :)

I threw a baby spook and a pop-r in the bag when I headed out a bit ago before the lightening rolled in.  I'm heading back out and will be sure to put them to work.  Thanks to all!
