BIG LONG LAKE FISHING VACATION!!!
Unbelievable but true!
Arrived at the lake house, got settled in and threw the Sniper lure from the dock, in about 5 minutes this beautiful northern Indiana bass slammed the lure!
What a start to my fishing vacation!!!
I decided to release this one...because I want someone else to enjoy this fish as much as I did!

WHAT IS...THE TOPWATER SNIPER LURE??
This is the first lure that started it all in September of last year. I hand carved it just to see if I could maybe someday catch a fish on it. After casting a popular brand name popping lure a dozen times on a lake at 2pm...I decided to check out the action on my untested lure. On the second cast I caught a bass, and then another. Then, throughout October and into November I used this same (still unpainted) lure to catch dozens of bass and a few pike ( I live in northern Indiana ).
This is my Dad with a nice pike caught on my Sniper lure in October 2015.
Over the winter I created a contest to test the lures out. Each competitor received 2 free lures. There is a northern division and a southern division. Each division consists of 5 competitors and are competing for $250.00. It is a point system based on numbers and weight of fish caught.
All Topwater Sniper lures are hand carved, hand painted, clear coated, and assembled by me.
...and now you know what a Topwater Sniper Lure is!!!!





RIVER SNIPIN"!!!
Last weekend, Terry and Logan from Texas went fishing on the Neches river and Sniped a few nice river bass. The rivers in their area have started to recede from torrential rain storms. Now that the rivers are down, fishing has improved!

PIKE POINTS!!!
Although this one is not big, he still rates as a 3 pointer in the contest.
Northern pike are plentiful and very aggressive...
I caught this guy this morning on Big Long Lake, then I realized that a competitor could rack up points quickly laying in to a bunch of pike!
