I love how photogenic this bait is! Beautiful bait in the mouth of a 3 pounder! I posted this pic because I've started fishing this topwater bait on fluorocarbon. What it'll do for you is if you let the line sink after the cast, you'll get the same alluring action, but a few inches under the surface! You'll still see the fish roll on top, but since it's slightly under, hookups are much more solid.

      Alright I'll throw it at my golfcourse if I can get away from school... There's some good grass there

      @TennesseeTroutboy yes! It is a topwater after all! It's just phenominal when you just let it float on the surface and dead stick it.

      @abuley34 I throw it along shallow grass edges mainly. Biggest key is to fish it slow. Generally about one revolution of the handle for every 3-4 seconds.

      I have one of these but I have like zero confidence in it... Where do you throw it like over grass lines or what

      Thanks @big_bass, does it float? @CalvinFease

      Actually @TennesseeTroutboy it works better on top because then you know you're working it slow enough. One of my friends fishes it subsurface and never catches ...more a thing.

      @TennesseeTroutboy it is made by black dog baits.

      Well I can understand how it works better topwater since a injured baitfish will go up top, what company makes it

      Really, it's a topwater whose bill gives it a more natural presentation at what we call "Calvin Speed" aka an absolute crawwwllll.

      It's a hybrid @TennesseeTroutboy

      So a swim bait?
    16. Calvin Fease 0
      @TennesseeTroutboy Don't tell anyone, but it works about 5x better as a topwater!
    17. TennesseeTroutboy 0
      Is it a swim bait or crankbait?
