Tilapia and Bass on a Zoom Horny Toad

A couple of days ago, we were kayak fishing for bass in a small creek near North Port. Kimball had a powerful strike and a good run from a fish that she didn’t see. After a good fight, she landed and released this really large Tilapia that took a frog. Now tilapia are not known as predators but this one ate the lure. I imagine the lure intruded in the nest and the tilapia picked it up to get it out of there. Kimball went on to catch and release over 15 bass in a little over 3 hours. All fish were caught on the Zoom Horny Toad in the Watermelon Red color. Me? I was paddling a guest and didn’t even make a cast. Learn how we fish this lure as a finesse bait in our book “Angler’s Guide to Kayak Fishing Southwest Florida-Sarasota Bay to Pine Island” Check out the whole series of waterproof angler pocket guides at https://www.anglerpocketguides.com/ 011915 (240)
