Best Topwater Snake?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to give topwater snakes a try. I've seen some small norther watersnakes swimming across local ponds and it has inspired me to give these a shot. I'm currently considering buying some Mann's Hardnose Floating Snakes. Anyone have any experience with these?

No experience with Mann's, but I do use snakes. Even in the everglades where there are alot of snakes, they are hit and miss.

I wasn't aware of Manns Floating Snake, but I do like Manns Baits.

This past spring we've done really well with the Wave Worm 5” Tiki-Snake,

which has a sickle-tail that never quits.

Frankly though, I never try to imitate a snake, which is NOT high on the menu of largemouth bass.

When I lived in Georgia, I had a small private pond on my property that I stocked with bass that we caught locally.

Those bass would eat just about anything we tossed into the pond with the exception of snakes and toads.

I later learned that many species of toads are poisonous and the snakes that eat those toads carry the same toxin.

In the early going, the bass in my pond would seize an occasional snake, but would regurgitate it shortly afterward.

Eventually though, the bass simply ignored all snakes and toads.
