This fishing trip we thought was going to be just small bass, but it turned into a shocking surprise of topwater amazment. Rob from Lunkers TV and I met up to go fall bass fishing at a random lake inbetween where we both live in Texas. We got there early in the morning to see if a topwater bite might be on. I had been to the lake one time before and knew there were a lot of small largemouth bass living in the lake. We started off the day by throwing hollow body frogs and topwater buzz frogs and starting getting bites right away! After hooking into a few small fish, I had a nice five to six pound largemouth crush my frog and break my line. My fishing rod and line I was using at the time was set up for 2-3 lbers, not giants. After discovering there were big bass in the shallow grass patches, we beefed up our rods and fishing line and stuck with fast moving topwater buzz frogs on top of the grass. Rob had a giant explode on his frog and miss it but stopping it for just a second, the bass came back and smashed that frog so hard that we were both screaming like we just saw jason on halloween. We landed the fish and went into town to get a scale so Rob could find out if that was his pb bass record. It turns out it was a 10 pound even double digit bass that we both will never forget after hitting that frog.
