bulltrout nailed it. sounds like any decent topwater minnow imitation or live if possible would work well. If the fish are bustin the minnows on the surface like it sounds like with the minnows jumping out of the water the bass are probably not spending alot of time examining what they are chasing. similar to stripers chasing a ball of shad or other baitfish. almost anything will be nailed.
let us know how it turns out.
