If u got up real early wat would u use on a small lake for topwater bass in the summer
If your fishin over moss and all that ide say a frog but if you can fish some open water i like the rebel poppers and hula poppers, it can be annoying but if you can walk the dog i like the rapala skitterwalk its a big bait compared to what i normally throw but i have even caught small fish on it...
I really like the new bronze eye frog from Spro. This can be deadly in the early morning over some moss or lily pads.
for big bass i like a buzzbait. you may not catch alot, but they should be nice size. another fav for small lakes and ponds is a black jitterbug, or a white weightless fluke esspecially when they are skiddish
I have three I commonly use,Weightless fluke,Pop R, and Zara spook. I hardy ever use buzz baits any more,but I have a few just in case thats whay they want.
i've used rapala floating minnows for years now 3-4 inch always good for a few bass in the early morning i know there are tons of lures that can be used but this is my favorite
I vote Buzzbait if there is a light chop on the water. Otherwise I would use a Pop R or zara spook.
been using a white topwater torpedo since i was a kid and they still work!
well the pond i hit has lilly pads and small open water spots i usually use a Bill Dance walkin stick in the open and a white/red Buzz Bait got my pb large mouth on a buzz it was a six pounder right next to the bank at 8 in the morning
I'd try some of the swimming frogs. My personal favorite is the Stanley Ribbit frog followed by the Zoom Horney Toad. They both work extremely well. However, a buzzbait is hard to beat. I've caught all but a handful of my bass over 5lbs on a buzz or frog and all but one of my bass over 7 on them. Topwater is the way to go....I love it. :wink:
I gotta go with the Hula Popper. Old school, but it still works great for me.
i like hocust locusts or jitterbugs, then frogs
i love the poppers! aint nothin like seeing the water explode and feeling the rod load up! my favorite was a bass popper.it it was shaped and looked like a largemouth.i used to buy them bare bones and design them myself. i did a lot of differant colors. the best was a white belly fading to red on sides and black on top with a touch of red under lip!!!! if anyone does thier own experiment with these colors i garantee you won't be disapointed! good luck, shane
well i went out a lil bit ago and treid afternoon had a couple swipes and caught a 3lb large but besides that no action
I havent bass fished for a long time but I use to like the hulla poopers in the still water in the morning
i love zara spooks, i give 3 twitches left right left then pause, the pause is deadly, 9/10 times the strikes are on the pause
I like using an old bait. called NIP_A_DITTY. use it in the lilly pads or at the inlet/outlet of the lake.
one i got on a lake near my house called blue rock
I like to walk a zara spook with a front runner about 12-16" in front of it. Caught lots of doubles doing this. Especially kentuckys.
