More Topwater Action!

Here's a nice bass I caught in West Virginia a while back on a topwater lure. I was casting off of the dock early in the morning when she exploded out of the water and engulfed my lure! It was a great fight and you can see my broken rod in the picture.
This is a great time of the year to fish for bass with topwater lures. I love the thrill of watching big bass blast these lures from below. Topwater poppers, frogs and buzzbaits are great and you need to keep some with you at all times.
Anytime the water is still, especially near dusk and dawn, these are some of my go-to baits.

Summer Bassin'

Another successful trip to a local pond yields some nice largemouth bass. This one was caught on a Strike King Red Eye Shad in the "Sexy Shad" color. What a freakin' bait! This bad boy catches bass, plain and simple! It has great action in the water and the rattles call bass in from far and wide. If you don't have one yet, all I have to say is-What Are You Waiting For?
This is a must have bait, you can get them anywhere, and in a shameless plug I encourage you to click on the Bass Pro Shops banner on this blog and get yours, NOW! You will not be disappointed!

River Bass

I had the chance to get out and do a little fishing yesterday. A short stop at the Yadkin River near Winston-Salem, NC yielded this nice little guy. He may have been small (almost 2 lbs) but he fought like a 4 pounder! I caught this one with a chartreuse Strike King Pond Magic spinnerbait. These are great little baits, I chose it since it's nearly snag proof and flashes great in the water. I had the best luck under a bridge in the shadows. Overall a great time and tons of fun fighting these stout river bass!
