Bass Fishing with a Topwater Frog (Toad) and Helping Turtles!
In this week’s first episode I’m out bass fishing with a topwater frog – toad – and helping the turtles. Some people call this version of a soft plastic frog a toad. Unlike a hollow body frog type lure, this topwater lure is rigged with a single hook. If you stop reeling this lure will sink which can come in handy when you’re bass fishing. I caught this bass by the bank even though I wasn’t paying attention. The lure started to sink and the bass chased it down once I started moving it again. Another lure I tried is a Structure Bug but I had no luck. I also end up helping a few turtles who were stuck in the water and in the road. Hopefully by moving them off the road they won’t meet their maker.

Bass Fishing at a New Pond with Topwater – Fishing a New Spot!
In the second episode of the week I’m doing some bass fishing at a new spot with topwater! I came across a new fishing spot near my rental cabin in middle Tennessee. I fished with a a Lunkerhunt Topwater Popper that is shaped like a frog and a Spro topwater frog. I didn’t get any bites on the Spro but I did score on the Lunkerhunt. First I catch a bluegill which gets my hopes up! Then I hook a nice largemouth bass and get it up to the bank. Bass fishing this new spot turned into a great time. I was really happy to catch a bass on topwater and glad to know there are places like this out there.

First Smallmouth Bass of the Year! Fishing With a Whopper Plopper!!
In the final episode this week I caught my first smallmouth bass of the year fishing with a Whopper Plopper and I am SO Glad. I was out with a stranger fishing on a boat while on my mini vacation here in Tennessee. It was a good time fishing a new lake and catching a smallmouth bass definitely made it even better. Who would have thought I would get lucky on a whopper plopper? I also took some time to fish the pond at the rental cabin again and caught another nice bass. I caught this bass on a Yum Pulse minnow – swimbait – near the bank. I had a great time on my staycation. Bonus was I was able to catch a bass or two which is always a good time.
