Underwater Footage From Bass Heaven!! (Is This Even Real?!) Insane Topwater Strike Footage!!

May 18, 2020 29 No Comments


This is the craziest school of GIANT BASS ever! They just finished spawning, they’ve schooled up on outside structure, and they’re hungry! Come UNDERWATER and watch as we throw TOPWATER lures over them. These fish are exploding on a frog, whopper plopper, walking bait, and popper. The topwater strikes are crazy!

Its amazing to see how different the bass treat each of these topwaters. The Whopper Plopper gets hunted down at top speed and ambushed any which way the fish is able to get it. The walking bait is hunted back and forth and ultimately ambushed from the side. The frog and popper are both hunted vertically with the bass shooting straight up and eating the bait belly first. 

There is so much we can learn from this! Knowing how the bass eat the baits tells us which baits to throw when the bass are in different moods. We also see that the slower moving baits will rely much more heavily on “fooling the fish” (bait color, sound, hook color, etc) than the faster moving offerings. 

Below is a breakdown of the baits in the video including our top 3 baits from each category. We’ve also included our favorite color choices for each style, hook and hardware upgrades, and our favorite rods for throwing topwater.
