There is nothing quite like a topwater bass strike, and this slow motion video proves it.
You are carefully working a topwater lure along the shoreline of your favorite bass lake. The lure looks exactly like a hapless frog trying to swim to safety. Your muscles are tensed in anticipation for a possible strike…then the water suddenly explodes and you are fighting a big bass.
Excited yet? If not, you will be after you watch these topwater bass strikes in slow motion.
This video shows just how violently a largemouth bass strikes its prey. It happens so fast in real time, anglers sometimes forget the impressive display of topwater bass strikes.
Hopefully, you will see a lot of similar strikes when you target bass this fishing season!
