When July and August get here, I turn my bass fishing into high gear. I am a born-and-bred topwater bass angler. Not many things give me the rush like seeing a huge bass attack a surface lure. So on August 1, I was lucky enough to be in a boat bass fishing with great friend Bryan Dralle from Coatsburg, IL.
Bryan and I are both just a little bit competitive, and I was certain there would be some sort of contest that day. We were both counting on a good topwater bite, but we disagreed on which surface to use. He chose a buzzbait and I went with the old reliable Jitterbug. The rules were easy; biggest bass wins.
