any of ya'll that have fished with me know I love to fish top water baits. but I haven't fished a propbait much at all, a little in the LPR for smallmouth and that's been a few years back now. so #1 question- where do you throw one?  #2- how do you work it?  #3 -what colors do ya'll like?  i'm thinking it's prolly a lot like spook fishing but I could be way off. just trying to shorten the learning curve some. any input would be appreciated.

My experiences with prop baits are alot like Wes's.....less action is more. An old man I used to work with hand made topwater baits out of cedar and most of his were cigar-shaped prop baits. between those and torpedo's, about the only action I ever give it is a medium sized twitch. Just enough to make that prop throw some water & make a commotion. Ive not ever really walked one like a spook, but I guess it could be done.

propbait?!?! sounds like a trolling technique!!! lol, we are heading into the best time of year to throw one when the water drops around the rocks especially in the river where you cant get a boat. had one of my best trips ever throwing one. just barely pulled it around rocks next to current and eddy. its a blast!!
