Lay Lake's Late Summer Topwater Bass
Nothing drastic, but a few changes for the better.
I started the day off fishing weeds around small main lake pockets. I picked the right one for sure. My first bass of the day was my biggest bass of the day as well.
A nice 7 pounder (the biggest I've seen on Lay lake in a while) nailed my zara super spook along an isolated weed patch. It jumped 2 feet in the air, calling for me to get the net. What a way to start your day!
It was not long before I had 3 nice and very aggresive spotted bass on the spook as well, two that would easily go over 3 pounds.
The action slowed as the sun got high, so I went to another topwater lure, a Snagproof frog.
It produced a 4 pounder and I missed another one even bigger. Clouds emerged so I went back to throwing the spook.
Unbelievably I had another big largemouth bass hit the spook in open water about 3 feet deep. It was about 5 pounds. It hit about 10 a.m.
It was almost 12 p.m. getting hot and I had not had a bite in over an hour. I headed in, but I had to stop along a mid lake island as moving water (current) was evident around the islands standing timber and stumps.
One last bass was all I saw. A two pound spot for all my efforts fishing the island for about an hour. But it to came on the zara super spook!
I asked an angler at the dock to take some pictures.
* The picture with this report is of me with the 3 biggest largemouth bass a 4 pounder, another easily 5 pounds and the biggest a 7 pounder. All caught on topwater lures!
At 1 p.m. the air temp was in the upper 90's so I headed home. Happy with my day of fishing topwater lures for Lay lake's shallow water bass!
