Busting Bass with Buzzing Frogs

I absolutely love bass fishing with topwaters …

How about you?  Does it get your adrenaline flowing; get the heart pumping?

In my book it should :)

As we move through spring and head toward summer, one thing is certain.  Frogs begin to croak and bass begin to key in these long-legged amphibians as a true delicacy!
