Guest Posted June 6, 2008 Report Share Posted June 6, 2008 What's up with fish slapping topwater lures with their tails. Have a lot of you noticed this behavior? Brenden mentioned it in his Sammy article. I saw it happen at least once last time I was fishing clear water, which may never happen again with all the rain. Maybe these fish are stunning their prey or disorienting it first. Maybe they're just playing with their food. I've kept bass in a fish tanks for years and after they had eaten their fill often they'd kill the rest of the minnows in the tank. That was an artificial situation. If the water ever does clear up I'm going to spend some time throwing soft top waters; a weightless tube and a weightless twister tail. The twister tail gives you a faster buzzbait look. Fish will hit these bait and hang on to them longer than hard baits. Also you can fish tubes and twisters swimming or bottom bumping so you have less stuff to carry.
