Smallmouth Food - Top Water

I know Top Water is not a category of smallmouth food, however it is a great way to catch them. Below are some of the best top water bugs I have used for bass over the years. Some of the imitations include: Frogs, Dragonflies, and general Baitfish.

Boogle Bugs have been the ticket this season. All colors and sizes have been working.
Troop's Square Head, a super light weight fly that makes a nasty pop.
Pat Cohen's Divers, another favorite this season. They work great early season or when the water is a bit high and off color.
Mice! everything eats them, so why should it be different with bass?
General Baitfish, early spring and fall the bass really seem to love chasing bait into the shallows
