I love frog fishing and topwater fishing but I have never fished a topwater lure just like a frog on top for bass! We found some fish in super shallow water in the backs of creeks. The water was pretty clear and the fish were chaising big baitfish up onto the bank. We started off fishing a Jacob Wheeler buzzbait but as the sun rose the fish never totally committed to it so we had to modify our topwater technique to be more subtle and literally start fishing the lure just like a frog. I could actually see the fish in the clearer water swimming off the bank and staying under the lure and starring at it until they were triggered by a small twitch after letting it sit floating for 5-10 seconds. The technique involved a walk the dog style topwater on braided fishing line and a medium heavy fishing rod. You’ve got to make long casts very near to cover in the backs of creeks targeting where the bank flattens out and often you’ll see the fish or bait fish (shad, herring, and bluegill) swimming around. Then walk the bait in slow twitches and long pauses just like fishing a floating frog – the biggest tip is to let the bait sit without moving for long periods of time.
