My favorite bass lure.

http://www.basspro.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/Product_10151_-1_10001_47675____SearchResults

Except the ones I use are 30-40 years old. They work very well for top water. Nothing like seeing a big larg mouth suck one down.

I was using them on my grandparents golf course down in FL, and they worked so well. Those golf course bass are dumb since no one seriously fish's them. I threw the frog in and a 6 pounder just inhaled it.

The best color combo is the "mouse" which they don't have anymore. Its just like it sounds, white bottom, light gray top, with eyes.

I hope you were C&R, I can only imagine the interesting chemical and fert runoff they probably contain.

I know different bass, but I took the kids to Ocean Beach in New London last Saturday and the freakin' striped bass were chasing minnows right up to the sand. I was standing in water waist deep and at any time there were 5-6 within a 10 ft. radius of me. They looked just short of 28" but were damn close to legal if they weren't. I could have scooped them up with a net.

Hattie - my favorite has got to be the Cotton Cordell Big O. Chartreuse color, or white. I have a great memory - as a kid I used to watch Bill Saiff's Rod and Reel fishing show. They had a telethon one year and my Dad called in with a pledge and got Bill on the line. I spoke with him and I was totally in awe. He asked me some basic fishing stuff and said since I was such an avid young angler, he'd send me two lures. Those were the two I got - white and chartreuse CC Big O's. I had the green one forever and caught dozens of fish with it.

Good memories, those. Sitting by a river as a kid, time standing still. Everything focused on that lure and the rhythm of the line being reeled in, waiting for that strike...

Topwater largemouth fishing is a blast. I've always had great success w/ Jitterbugs for all sized bucketmouths and a Zara Spook for the BIG bass.

Jitterbugs are my number 2 favorite lure. I love topwater because of the action. I think you can do better fishing fake plastic worms and crank baits, but topwater is a blast.

I love it when a big bass just inahles the lure. Sometimes I'll bounce it off the dock and when it hits the water "gulp" down the hatch.

My dad pulled a pretty 5 pounder out from under a log last weekend.
