here's a bait that a friend turned me on to about 2 years ago. when baits work as good as this one for BIG bass, i usually am pretty reluctant to share. but hey, y'all are my buddies, right? <!--graemlin::)--> o.k., you can only get it at bass pro shops, and guess what- they're on sale now - for only $3.34. <!--graemlin::D-->. it's a big saltwater popper. it's in bps' offshore angler lazer eye series. it's called a "magnum z pop".
when topwater time rolls around, you just cannot beat this bait for catchin' some real lunkers. it's 4.5 inches long. i think it weighs about 2 oz. so you can sling it a mile and cover lots of water. the "mouth" on this baby is about the size of a golf ball so when you pop it, it sounds like somebody throwin' big rocks in the lake. but man does it ever call up some big fish. the strikes on this thing are just heart- stopping too! a lot of the fish i've caught on this bait attack it so viciously that they have it all the way down in their mouths when i bring 'em in. here's the thing though, if you just want to catch a lot of regular size fish, this bait is not for you. it will occasionally catch 'em in the two pound range, but by and large, this is a specialty bait for lunkers only. so if you wanna catch a big one on top, give this a try. i think you'll be glad you did!
