Fishing frogs for largemouth bass in the winter time isn’t a common approach in bass fishing. In this video, I was bass fishing on a really warm day in December. The water was reaching the low 70’s and bass were starting to move up shallow to feed on shad that were in the backs of some pockets on the lake. I decided to throw a topwater frog around some grass to see if there where any largemouth bass that would come up and hit a topwater back in the grass. Amazingly, I had a few bass explode on my frog! They were very aggressive hits and I had to set the hook quick to try and bring the fish out of the weeds. I was fishing a heavy baitcasting rod and reel set up with braided line. This was my first bass ever on a topwater frog in the month on December.
