Recently I have been tearing up the bass in the evenings on top water poppers like this one. If you see anything hitting on top water it might be time to put your popper on and see what happens!
My favorite lure is definitely top water frogs. They work best late in the evenings or early in the morning when the water is still. When a bass goes for a frog, it jumps halfway out of the water which is what anglers call a blow up. Whenever you get a blow up on a frog, it's exciting! I fish with several different frogs and this one has to be my favorite.
