Me and Dad spent a couple hours on Big Long lake this morning. The wind was terrible, Dad forgot the fishing net, and the outboard motor wouldn't start. Caught a couple small bass on the BULLET topwater lure and had several strikes and misses...had one explode out of the water about 8 feet from the boat, but he missed the hooks. There is absolutely nothing like top water bass strikes...and in northern Indiana in April!!! Going to be a fun summer!
