The steady gurgle of a Jitterbug can lull you into a daze, but don’t let that happen. Night bites on topwater plugs occur with zero warning, sometimes right at the boat, and they tend to be violent.

Most people associate me so closely with the Pop-R that, even if I catch my bass on a jig during a tournament, they still think I caught them on a Pop-R.
