Bass Fishing with a Topwater Frog (Toad) and Helping Turtles!
In the first episode this week
Today I am out bass fishing with a topwater frog (toad) and helping turtles. Some people call this style of soft plastic frog, a toad. Unlike a hollow body frog, this topwater lure is rigged with a single hook. It will sink if you stop reeling, and that can come in handy when bass fishing. I caught this bass right by the bank when I wasn’t even paying attention. My lure started to sink and he chased it down when I started moving it again. Another lure I try is a Structure Bug, with no luck. I also help a few turtles who were stuck in the water and in the road. Hopefully by moving them off the road, the won’t meet their maker.

Bass Fishing at a New Pond with Topwater – Fishing a New Spot!
In the second episode this week
Today I am doing some bass fishing at a new spot with topwater! I found a new fishing spot near my rental cabin here in middle Tennessee. I fished with a Spro topwater frog and a Lunkerhunt Topwater Popper, that is also shaped like a frog. I did not get any bites on the Spro, but I did score on the Lunkerhunt. I catch a bluegill first, which gets my hopes up! Then I hook a nice largemouth bass and get it to the bank. I had a great time bass fishing at a new spot. I was happy to catch a bass on topwater and happy to know there are places like this out there.

First Smallmouth Bass of the Year! Fishing With a Whopper Plopper!!
In the final episode of the week
I am so glad I caught my first smallmouth bass of the year fishing with a Whopper Plopper. I was out fishing on a boat, with a stranger, while on my mini vacation here in Tennessee. It was fun fishing a new lake and catching a smallmouth bass made it even better. Who would have thought I would get lucky on a whopper plopper? I also had another chance to fish the pond at the rental cabin and caught another nice bass. I caught it on a Yum Pulse minnow (swimbait) near the bank. I had a great time on my staycation, and I am always happy to catch a bass or two.
