Propbaits are similar to stickbaits, but they have a propeller at one or both ends. Propbaits give you a few options for topwater fishing. You can cover large areas with fast, steady retrieves or cover small areas with a slow, twitching retrieve, with a pause between twitches.
Rod, Reel & Line
Propbaits are usually fished with a baitcaster with heavier line and a heavier rod, however, spinning gear and 8 to 12 pound line will also get the job done while fishing for smallmouth bass and largemouth bass in open water. If you’re fishing around heavy cover, go heavier and you’ll have a better chance to land that real big fish.
