One of my favorite topwater lure to use is the Spro Bronzeye Popper, which is extremely effective in covered-water as well as open-water. These frogs are reliable as well as built to survive even the strongest attacks from northern pikes. Heavy enough to cast far but sizeable enough for bass to strike, this frog will be a great topwater lure throughout the warm season. Besides the attractive splash this frog makes, its color is also a favorite for bass, whether it’s green, black, red, yellow, or many others. There’s nothing better than seeing a largemouth, regardless of size, smash your frog right before your eyes.
Last year was a great year for bass fishing smallmouths and largemouths. Because I moved for college, I’ll be fishing in the Eau Claire, WI and Menomonie, WI area. I’ve explored the city constantly and the lakes and rivers that they have looks like an excellent habitat for bass to live in. I don’t know what is out there, but I’ll find out when the season starts.
