Fishing in Lily Pads - With a Topwater Lure


 

In 2020, I went fishing in lily pads more than ever before. Why? Well, because I caught fish in them. I probably caught over 100 fish in the lily pads this year alone. Two were over 5 pounds and one over 6 pounds. So what did I do different that year? I'm glad you asked......I used a lure called the scum frog.

 

Let's dive right in.

 

Fishing in Lily Pads with a Topwater Lure

The frog was green and white, not only that but I fished it differently than ever before.

 

You see when I went fishing in lily pads, I used to go slow, I mean real slow. My way of thinking was that even though the bass is a fast swimmer, they would have a hard time catching up with the lure through the pads, if I retrieved it too fast.

 

Not only that, but, I wanted to put it in their face a lot longer by going slow on my retrieve.

Well, then I watched this other guy fishing in lily pads and he was running it through them almost as fast as any buzz bait I have seen used. I was using the same lure except slow. The outcome? Well, he was getting strikes, I mean lots of strikes, I was getting none.

 

 

I Began Getting Strikes

So, I went back over the same area I just fished and guess what? Yep, I began getting strikes, but I was missing them as the lure would get past the fish.

 

I thought maybe I should compromise when fishing in lily pads, so, I slowed down my retrieve just a hair and bingo, I started catching fish. That is the way I used the scum frog for the rest of the fishing season.

 

Fast, but not quite as fast as a buzz bait, when they would hit and miss I would stop the bait and just twitch it a few times.

This was one of my best fishing years in over 40 of fishing for bass, all due to this new retrieve.
