Everglades Topwater Frogging Bass
We finally have running water in the lower part of the everglades. I use a frog year round, but the summer downpours usually lead to some pretty good topwater action. Today I had determined that I would concentrate on frogging. Caught a dozen bass in an 75 minutes and missed that many. Lost the biggest to an alligator. Hindsight being 20/20 I could have backed off the fish and he would probably would have gotten away. Nothing big but it always fun to hit em on top. I used a spinner bait on a couple of them as well. I used a Shimano Cumara 7-2 med/hvy with a Shimano Curado 200e7 w/40# Suffix 832 braid.
