Yesterday, we released James Watson's interview on spoon jackin', as he joked, he's known for one other thing, fishing a Whopper Plopper. In this 37-minute bass fishing class, James Watson is here to share seasonal secrets for fishing a Whopper Plopper (and other topwater baits). He talks about where to fish them at different times of year, what to look for and the tackle you'll need to catch bass effectively on these baits.

To everyone at Bass University, Thank you guys for all that you do! I signed up for a yearly subscription last year and learned so much from all of the seminars. It was so convenient to find seminars on every topic all in one place. Without Bass University I was always searching the internet to find out new tips and techniques but this really simplified things. I really appreciate you bringing this wealth of knowledge to us anglers so thanks again!
