How to Fish Topwater Poppers in Cover for Bass

Poppers are a favorite topwater bass fishing lure but many are scared to fish them around woody cover for fear of snagging. Professional bass fisherman Ott DeFoe will tell you this is exactly where you should throw them. Big bass are tough to pull from their haunts so having a bait that imparts lots of action and noise while staying relatively in place is excellent at calling fish from cover and triggering strikes.

Ott discusses how he fishes poppers around cover and adjusts his cadence to the mood of the fish. Not all poppers are created equal – Ott had a direct hand in the development of the Storm Arashi Cover Pop ( and shares some key design specs that make this an excellent popper for cover scenarios and being able to handle giant bass such as a 9-pound, 9-ounce behemoth it produced for Ott in the 2017 Bass Master Classic.

Bass Fishing Creek Drains with Jerkbaits and Jigs

Bass fishing in the winter and pre spawn time is the perfect time to fish jerkbaits and other slow moving lures. Ins this tournament fishing vlog video, I am fishing with Grant against 2 other teams including Andrew Flair and The Fish Whisperer. We are in winter but the warm weather and high water temps from the power plant lake have the surface temps in the low 70’s. This has convinced the largemouth bass that they need to start getting ready to spawn. Grant and I are are fishing drains creek drains leading into major spawning flats using a jerkbait and a jig. Jerkbait fishing is perfect for this time of year where bass are suspending in upper half of the water column to warm up. Fishing a bass jig on the bottom can also be effective at targeting docks and trees that around close to these spawning flats and the creek channels leading into them. This lake had standing timber in it, which made it very easy to see exactly where the creek channels are and it created a map of where the bass are moving in and out of. We found the the smaller male bass were moving up on the flats when the sun came out to start feeding and getting ready to make beds for the big female largemouth bass. The bigger bass liked to stay along the creek drains close to the timber. We targeted these big bass by throwing the jerkbaits and jig as close to the cover as possible and using a few seconds of pauses between hops and jerks. Bass fishing these creek drains with jerkbaits and jigs can be a pattern for catching big bass in winter all the way through the post spawn.
