    6. illinoistopwater 0

  5. Details: Largemouth Bass with a Topwater

    Can't get enough top water baits! I wish it was spring so I could get out on the water.

    1. illinoistopwater 0
      No problem. Good luck out there! haha @MusicCityBass
    2. MusicCityBass 0
      Ok thanks! It always makes me laugh when people buy expensive frogs just for the pattern on top lol. I have heard great things about the black/yellow spros. Thanks ...more again for the info!
    3. illinoistopwater 0
      I've probably caught the most bass with my black and yellow Spro jr frog @MusicCityBass
    4. illinoistopwater 0
      My favorite kind are pad crashers but I've also caught a lot on the spro jr frogs. As for colors I try to keep it simple so black, white, green, or brown most ...more of the time. @MusicCityBass
    5. MusicCityBass 0
      That's probably why I don't catch many (by many I mean I've only caught 1 ever). Are those Spros or PadCrashers? And what is a good color that has a ...more green bottom?
    6. illinoistopwater 0
      I have never used trailer hooks. After a lot of missed hook sets I just trained myself to count to 2 or 3 before setting the hook. Also using pliers and bending ...more the hooks up a little helps @MusicCityBass
    7. MusicCityBass 0
      I'll give you that one lol. I love frog fishing, I just never can get good hooksets. Do you use the LFT trailer hooks?
