Weird Topwater Lure??? Slaying Early Fall Bass at Little Seneca Lake

Fishing with the most absurd topwater lure I’ve ever seen… It rattles, has a back propeller, and had two giant blades in the front, truly a frankenstein style bait!

The morning held perfect conditions for the pompadour, cloudy + windy. But once the sun came out the bass shut down so Cornell and I switched to finesse with shaky heads and drop shots. Plenty of numbers, and by the end of the day, we got dialed in on the grass lines and pulled out some chunky late summer bass!
