Details:Sam and I met up at 4:45 am on Sunday. We started at pond A. A clear water pond with smallies and largemouth. There were some smallies on beds but it didn't matter. We were killing it with spooks, Jimmy's and Sammy's. They couldn't lay off the dog. We also picked up some fish with craws. Around midday we moved to pond B.
Pond B was a bigger bow also with clear water. Smallies and largemouth live here too. We saw even less beds here. We didn't catch as many fish here as pond A but the quality was there. Our biggest was around 4 pounds. We were getting them on jigs, craws, and grubs. I can't remember if we got any on top.
Day 2
I met Sam at 5 am and we headed out in search of Larry. I had spooled up my new frog rod the night before and was eager to try it. (Genesis air 7'5 H with a lews tournament pro 7.1). I started throwing a popping frog while Sam went with the spook. Over the next 4 hours with heavy cloud cover and intermittent showers the Topwater bite was on fire. We boated 50 or more fish from dinks to 3 1/2 pounders. I've never seen such an awesome Topwater bite before.
Then the weather shifted. It got windier and the sun was popping out. The fish went tight to cover and it was a grind for the next few hours. We boated about 10 more fish but Sam probably got 9 of them. We wrapped it up early and avoided the traffic home. We definitely beat our previous best of one kabillion fish. I can't wait to throw that frog again.

Sam takes all of the trial and error out of gear selection. He's already done it so I just buy what he has. I've been happy so far. That frog combo is sick. Super light with crazy back bone.

Nice. I need to pick one up. I haven't yet tried a popping frog but keep reading about people crushing LM with them.
