Large Mouth Bass
They are fun to catch with surface plugs in the Lilly pads using poppers or jitterbugs in June to July. It is exciting watching them shoot out from under neath the Lillies and blast your plug out of the water. You must use heavier line then, so they don't break it on the Lillies, or bite through it. They have hard mouths, so remember to set the hook, as soon as they hit it. As the water warms, they move deeper out to the weed or grassy areas. A tub bait works good then, they are easy to get deep quickly, or a shiner with a few split shot.
