Water plants have always fascinated me. Just had a phone so sorry for quality.

Since we don’t have much water we just have moss. What are those? Water Lilly’s?

Not Lotus, Water Lily. Lotus rises 3-4ft above the water and the seed head looks like a shower head when finished.

I run a seedless frog over the top of every patch like that I find. Every now and again I catch the biggest fish of the day like that.

Would have loved to fish but was there for a quick visit at a friends lake house.

I heard them seedless frogs were pretty good eating. Personally, I prefer a weedless frog when fishing lilies for bass. laugh

when a bass comes up an nails a top water frog , it is a lot of fun

Frogs are fun but once midday hits I like to flip a creature bait into holes in the pads.

Took the jon boat out with my 14yo son this afternoon and fished an area exactly like these photos...except the lillly flowers were yellow, not white. The patch of lilly pads is so thick you can't fish with anything except a hollow body frog. Everything else gets tangled in the weeds. Had lots of strikes but no hook-ups. The advantage of hollow body frogs is that the hooks are protected by the frog's body and they will skip on top of the lilly pads without ever getting tangled. The disadvantage is that the hooks are protected by the frog's body and they rarely hook a fish.

If anybody has a solution, I'd like to know it. I've caught a few big bass on these lures but I miss most of them.
