Recomend a lure for topwater fishing mossy areas that don't cost $10+ each :)

Recommended Posts

I am fishing a 10 acre lake with vast quanties of moss from 25'-75' out.  There are big bass in there, but the moss makes fishing a regular topwater lure with treble hooks impossible.  I have had some luck with a weightless Senko, but even that gets mossy build up on it.

Recomend a topwater lure (frog, mouse etc.) that is weedless that will work for my hunt for big bass.  Thanks is advance!

I use horny toads, but any of them work.

I like a 4/0 wide gap skin hooked, most weedless I have found.

The lures with 2 hooks will catch floating weeds or grass between the hooks and the body.

    I would try either the SPRO Bronze Eye frogs, or either Zoom Horney Toads.

A big tube jig, texas rigged, weightless, preferably one without salt as the salt makes it sink too much.  As long as you keep twitching, it'll stay on top.  You can then let it flutter down in holes.  Works great on mucky lakes as you can hide the hook eye, the shape of the tube sloughs off weeds, and the bass generally haven't seen it before.

I'd also say the bronzeye frog, or any number of toads, including the ragetail toad or zoom hornytoad.

True,I have had that problem with scummy moss, but the bronzeye poppin frog doesn't do that and that is what I would reccomend.This is one of the hottest and most effective new baits out.

[/quoteIt is true, but my experience with Southern Pro and River2Sea frogs have been similar to your

ANY BAIT IN MOSS< WILL PICK UP A LITTLE MOSS

You learn how to minimize that and work it with good results.I also trhow *** Toads with a 4/0 EWG, it also picks up a little moss, but is also effective

Bronzeye Popper Frog works well and also the Snagproof Bass Kicker Frog. It weighs 3/4oz and handles moss very well without getting gunked up.
