Sounds like you had some fun with the school fish. Did you try a spook or Sammy on top? a spoon underneath? or a jig deep? thats where the bigger bass should be looking for a easy meal the schoolies injured.
When the bass are trashing bait fish like that, you are better off using something flashy like the spoon ripped off the bottom or a shad colored swim jig like spider twin tail grub. Spooks work better than a buzzer on flat water.imonembad said:I never threw topwater didn't even cross my mind until I saw a local pro at the ramp with a buzz bait tied on. I couldn't get on top of the fish or it would have spooked them the water is too shallow 4-10 foot. I dig drag a jig and a tube but I couldn't get any takers. I guess I should have tried my beloved drop shot but like I said I was having a good day and the drop shot probably would've ruined it for me. I struggle with it to say the least.
