The vid highlights the 3/4oz version paired with a 5.5″ D&M Custom Baits Flippin Craw – but depending on winds/cover I’ll go all the way up to a 1oz or down to a 1/2oz. Trailer size varies depending on the fish – but for the most part fishing in FL you want to go big. I got the blues (grin).

Bobber stoppers to peg the 1/8oz bullet weight on the nose of the Topwater Dog – helps the bait to ride a bit lower when burning it creating a pretty little bubble that almost reminds you of a buzzbait. In super skinny slick water go down to a 1/16oz or even run it weightless. Hook choice is an Owner XXX 5/0 Twistlock.

Use a pulsed retrieve much like you’d fish a crankbait. Even in the grass I keep the rod tip almost pointing at the bait allowing it to slink thru the grass with direct tension being placed on the nose – it’s not being dragged thru by a high rod tip causing the hook to pop out.

A subtle jig alternative pairing a 1/2oz tungsten weight (double-bobber stoppers to peg), an Owner 7/0 Wide Gap Plus hook, and a big tube (4″ or larger) makes for a subtle midday/clear water flipping presentation

    Love your stuff! Keep up the vids…they are informative and entertaining. Surprisingly, there is a general lack of ggod quality fishing vids out there. Yours are best. Your are at the forefront, much like the early skate, surf, and parkour videographers. Also great tunes on this one!

    • Thx for the shout out Aaron! I agree with you there’s a huge opportunity to break into some new-school content that is informative and at the same time cool to watch (stylized). The west coast guys are a little ahead of the cut on this one but you’re right, it’s just developing. Got more coming in a bit!

  3. Extra dope!
