Did you get a new truck?
Thanks John. Yeah, it's a new truck. GMC Yukon Denali. I love it. We're gonna have to do some fishing too when we hook up again.

That pond definitely screams "frog", lol. I'm a huge topwater fan too. I love watching the hit. Too cold for topwater here though. I've been catching smallmouth off some rocky points lately.
Where I fish, Largemouth are the predominant species, but the fact that Smallmouth prefer colder water and can be found mostly around rocks, they're the ones biting. Weird actually...I've been throwing crawfish imitation baits and nothing! That's strange, because Smallmouth primarily feed on crawfish. That's why they prefer rock piles and boulders...an environment sure to home craws. Good luck fishing friend, and DON'T be afraid to post some pics if you catch em.
