a 1st for me

Post  rocstar21 on 7/29/2011, 11:03 pm

went to the lake tonight w/ new rod in hand, just was looking to really practice w/ my bait caster since its been a while since I have used one...... my buddy decided to try a topwater and on his 3rd cast got a lil guy, so I decide to put one on........ missed 2 fish out of complete excitement pulling the bait out of there mouths....... and got a 3rd to swallow it! its my 1st ever top water Large mouth bass!!!! caught it on a rapala X-rap frog pattern popper! its was so sick seeing that fish come completely out of the water and just destroy that bait!!!!

Congrats Roc now your hooked on that top water action I bet.
Hart racing and excitement like no other hits can give you.
One spring you need to come up north here when the bass and blues are both hitting top water pencils and poppers. You would love it. And you have an uncle that can put you on fish.

yes C.G. the top water action is awesome, Guess The reason I never caught one was cause of my fast retrieve........ I slowed it way down and much smaller rod tip jerks...... think its the key. would love to hit up the stripers and blues

topwater is by far the best. last spring i got into a blitz of blues and stripers and nothing beats seeing a fish explode on a popper that i made. caught about a dozen fish before i decided that my plug had enough and was gonna remove it to put it up on the fishing wall after the next cast. it was tore up no paint left and teeth marks all over it. well you can guess what happened next. plug hit the water, fish blew up on it, set the hook, fish jumped, line broke, fish swam away with my plug in his face. i was bummed, but hopefully someone will get a dozer orig. plug with alot of war wounds on it. topwater is my favorite type of fishing.
