It’s time to go fishing in the dark

    In August and early September I have enjoyed some of the best top-water fishing I can recall, with nothing more than a casting reel, my old johnboat and an old-fashioned jitterbug lure…and a headlamp. It puzzles me that when I am fishing during the daytime, that jitterbug, first made seven decades ago by the Arbogast Lure Company, doesn’t seem to get much attention from bass.  I use another old reliable Arbogast lure, the hula popper, during daylight hours and catch bass on it.  But it has an entirely different action than that you get from a jitterbug.
