Arbogast Jitterbugs - Original
Night fishing at its finest
I fished a local lake this evening looking for pre-spawn bass but had no takers. There were people everywhere doing the same thing i was. People were all over the bank and boats were everywhere. As the sun began to set the people gradually dispersed. Just as soon as the sun dropped below the horizon i tied on the original jitter bug and threw it out. I slowly chugged it back toward the bank and BAM!!! About two feet from the bank i had a largemouth engulf the lure. I got another on my second cast and caught 7 within the hour and a half all between 2 and 4lbs. If you like the suspense of dragging your lure over glass smoothing, waiting for that classic splash... get one. I highly recommend it. Heres one that fell victim to my jitterbug

The Best Lure To Use At Dusk & After Dark
I just started using this lure and I have caught several bass and even a few bluegill using it. Like most people have written this lure seems to do great when its dark and the black lure seems to work very well. I will be ordering some of the other colors and trying them out during the daylight hours. The hooks I feel could be sharper and better quality other than that its a great topwater bait.

Awesome Jitterbug-Monster Largemouth
I took the advice of a fellow fisherperson up in Wisconsin, went to a " Bass Pro Shop" and purchased a few of these "Arbogast Jitterbugs"!
Thank you fellow fisherperson, I caught more largemouth using the little black one with the yellow eye than I've EVER caught on one vacation! And BIG!
Cool thing, since lake was low, a lot of weeds... but this thing jitters along the top, and I could actually see the bass attack the lure... SO COOL!

Favorite Topwater Lure!!
My favorite Topwater lure by far simply because I catch the most bass with it. It out fishes all of my plugs, original floaters, frogs, any kind of topwater it will beat. The sortof peanut shaped bill on it allows it make a lot of racket on top of the water and it drives the bass crazy!!
Good luck with it next time you're out fishing!
The fish in the picture was caught by a 3 inch black jitterbug. He weighed 7 lbs!
