i still never got a topwater! though fishing here is a lot different then there.. it can work.. just in the right times and the right areas.. which sadly i cant really get to. but ya ive had a few swipes a couple times early am but ya none yet.. though when i get out later in day i usually avoid it. its funny last night i saw you and your daughter on the sportsman tv channel.. owning. gl on some hogs man.

spy bait vs prop which is better around the ozark's highland reservoir like table rock; here is my thought, the spy bait a guy was throuhing ofshore on a sespended group of bass offshore but the prop bait would probably produce a lot better fish around boat docks when the fish are fikle with poppers. also you and Hilary are making some of the best content

Ok so like I’ve mentioned before I’m new to bass fishing and I’m absolutely ate up with it. I mean I just can’t get enough of it. But I got to say, I’ve gotten a little discouraged, because it’s been tough the last couple of times out. I question if it’s me and what I’m doing or this Alabama heat. I don’t have a lot of tackle either, I have a spinning rod and just got a Lew’s mach 2 bait caster combo. One of the biggest things I’m having trouble with is which baits and lures and what line to throw them on. Never realized just how complex bass fishing can be. You did a great job explaining everything with the what line to use and how to retrieve. Thank you for taking the time to make this video, It really helps me! Thanks dude🙏

Unicorn Steaks thanks dude, yeah I’m really looking forward to fishing in the fall. I have loved fishing so much I’ll probably be fishing through the winter and spring lol I also watch a lot of Roland Martin videos, Mr. Martin has some great videos too!

It's not just you. It's tough all over the south. Google some finesse tactics for the dog days of summer. Hang in there. Fall's coming.

Ya just keep it up man, it gets tough sometimes but just keep “studying” and trying new things and you can figure it out. I hope my videos will help!

Scott what bait would you consider the best use for the Favorite Emperor 7'4" Heavy Moderate? I use it for frogs, flipping and big weedless swimbaits but which one technique would you consider the best for that rod. It's really stiff all the way thru with no softness in the tip whatsoever. It's like a very heavy parabolic action. I have frog, flipping and swimbait rods but trying to figure where this rod best fits in.

Scott you demonstrated popping a prop bait. I submit that a intermittent slow steady retrieve about 2 ft at a time is as effective or more effective. That slow turn of the prop. Granted you are a Pro and I am an average angler, but when was the last time you used one, much less won, in a tourney popping a topwater prop bait?
