Thanks for the info ZZIIPP :)
Im not sure what you mean by a WAKE BAIT?
IS A CHUGBUG A WAKE BAIT?
A POP R?
not really a chug bug and pop r are most effective in a stop and go pattern thus no steady v wake.

JITTERER BUGS CAN BE DEADLY AFTER DARK...
YOU GOTTA GIVE THEM AN HONEST TRY TO PRODUCE.
BLACK IS MY FAVORITE COLOR,RED AND WHITE IS NEXT IN LINE,I ALLSO CAUGHT MANY A BASS AND STRIPER OC THE COACH DOG COLOR.
YEARS AGO,IM GOING BACK 20 OR BETTER,YOU USE TO BE ABLE TO GET STRIPERS AROUND THE DOCKS ALL THE TIME,NOT THE BIG 20LBERS,LOTS AROUND 3 TO 8LB..WAS A GREAT TIME...

ZZIIPP MENTIONED TINY TORPEDOS,,ONE OF MY FAVORITE ON THE RIVER,I LIKE TO THROW THEM PARALELL TO THE SHORE....
BEFORE OR AFTER DARK. ;)

IM GOING OUT FRIDAY AND SATURDAY EVENING WITH THE YAK,,GUNNA STAY AFTER DARK,YOUR MORE THAN TO JOIN ME SPIDER.
WE VWILL GIVE THE GITTER BUGS A SHOT....

ZZIIPP I GOT 3 YAKS I KNOW YOU MIGHT BE INTERESTED IN HEADING OUT ONE NITE.
LET ME KNOW...

I hear ya chez and thanks.if you can find them the florescent green jbugs are killer at night.not easy to find though. I think they are discontinued.and there's a florescent yellowish one to.the jointed black bug with or without rattles is one of my favs.the green and black spotted frog pattern has done well for me the last 2 yrs also.

no I've used them often but not for long. They say you have to have confidence in your lure and I don't. I change lures a lot and if it don't get any attention, I tie on another. Maybe I just gotta bring a couple jitterbugs and leave everything else at home so I don't have a choice. Build up some confidence in the lure.

They have their nights and some nights you throw everything and nothing.I fish em in shallow water around openings in grass and pads.and up and down the shorelines.you gotta stay a Lil stealthy though you wanna fish the spot your going to next.if you just walk down you may spook a nice one out before you even casted.a lot of times they are close to shore. Once I'm settled I turn my lamp off. In case one follows to shore. Nothing like blasting a lunker in the eyes with a bright light and watch him high tail outta there.

most of the places I fish you really can't fish from shore without waders. I just float along and cast to whatever looks fishy. The upper section of the lower lake is shallow with a lot of weeds and lily pads. That's my next target. Gonna hit that for bass this week sometime.

Great pics and catch ZZIIPP!! 

I grew up using only the jitterbug for night time .... dedicated to black and only black...

The Krazy Crawler lure was also productive for me at times...

I dont have any left bit the still make them.
The Hulla Popper,,,in Coach Dog,Or Black.
Caught a lot of bass back in the day on thozs guys.
Spider ,,,you do need to have faith in the lure your using.
Im having the same problem with the Chatter Baits,i bought 3,
I throw them for a half hour,and change back over to a spinnerbait.
And then i catch fish.lol.
I gotta dedicate a few hours to those Chatter Baits.
Ive only used them on 1 lake a few times so far.
Ill be on a lot more lakes now that bass season is in.

Bass and top water, good discussion.  Anyone ever hear of a Field Mouse ?



these things are supposed to be deadly for bass

I plan on fishing the Susky this evening and staying out past dark.  I'll try a variety of top water and see what goes on.

I think I got my 1st bass on a Jitterbug when I was 7 years old, been hooked ever since.

I'm curious how well one of those would work. Better use heavy line...wouldn't want to lose it. I know they're  a little pricy $$
Fish hard, bend your rod

Yeah, Livetarget field mouse. Like $12 a pop!

I know from experience that big bass love mice. I found some young mice in a nest in my shed one time. I lived on a lake so I walked to an overlook and tossed them in to watch their action to try and copy it. I didn't get much chance. I threw in 3 mice and watch 3 different bass, from 4# to 7#, rush out from the banks and nail them. Yep, big bass like mice!

now that I think of it, a jitterbug might sound like a big mouse swimming across the water to a bass.


yup, just found one painted like a mouse! hmmm.

I've used them live. Trap them in a pail, the old high wire five-gallon pail trick with no water to drown them. Wire a hook to the tail and gently toss them in a likely spot. They will always swim away from the tension of the line so they swim away from you. KERSPLASH!!!!
