John Carroll:
[inaudible 00:00:08] a top water bait. Hello, really? Really? Hold on. Be right back. Okay. Well, apparently I now have company. So the original OG style... Get down.

John Carroll:
Hey, what's up guys, John from Mongo Fishing, and I'm here today on the MONSTERBASS channel to talk to you about the Big Bite Bait Buzzing Warmouth, that came in the October, 2020 MONSTERBASS box. But before we get into this, make sure you hit the subscribe button right down there, along with the bell notification button so you get notified every time MONSTERBASS comes out with another video. So, let's get into this.

John Carroll:
All right, guys, this is the Big Bite Bait Buzzing Warmouth. This is based off of Big Bite Baits Warmouth, it's a bait that they've had out since... It's been out for eight or nine years. It's been out for a minute. It's a great flipping bait people have used for a long time. Good for bed fishing, sight fishing, stuff like that.

John Carroll:
And this is the same body design. The biggest difference is these little kicker tails. The original OG Warmouth had the lower end, the tail, if you will, was that of the Dean Rojas Fighting Frog, very similar. Not exactly the same, but pretty similar. And this of course has kicking feet instead. This is a top water bait. You can use it for other techniques if you wish, but the main design is the Warmouth, but in a new top water version. So, let's get into rigging.

John Carroll:
One thing you'll notice with this is it has this big hook pocket. And again, that comes from the original design. It's not really relevant on the Buzzing Warmouth as it is in the others. My assumption was that it stayed there because of the body design, but apparently they kept it because I guess it helps with the collapsibility of this thing when it gets bit. My dog is scratching herself. So I apologize if you hear that in background.

John Carroll:
Okay. So, rigging. This right here is a Kitana 5/0 EWG hook. When you rig this, you want to use it 4/0 or 5/0 EWG hook, something that's nice and sturdy, nice and thick. You don't want to use a light wire hook with this technique in any way, shape, or form. It's got to be a stout hook.

John Carroll:
So, when you're looking on this body, down here near the legs, one side will have a T and the other side does not. So, this side right here as the T, so this side does not. You're going to take your hook, stick it right through the tip of the nose, and bring it down about a quarter inch or so, and pop it out the side that does not have the T. Run your hook up to the front, like that, rotate it around.

John Carroll:
Now there's three little lines down here. You can use those three little lines to make sure that you get this thing centered when you poke your hook out. Right there, poke your hook out, kind of skin hook it a little bit, and there you go, this thing is [weedless 00:03:35], ready to rock and roll. You can cast it out and bring it through some nasty stuff.

John Carroll:
So, that's the primary number one way of rigging it. But it's not necessarily my favorite. Favorite would be this. This is a Keel Weighted Swimbait hook. This one just happens to be another Kitana hook with a screw lock in it. So, what the screw lock does, it makes sure that the head stays nice and centered, but the Keel Weight right here, make sure that this thing runs nice and flat the way it's designed. If you throw it out like this with a regular EWG hook, it may actually land upside down. So, you want to have a nice heavy hook, to make sure that it stays this way instead. And having a Keel Weighted hook kind of ensures that's what's going to happen.

John Carroll:
You just got to make sure that you use a lightweight, like 16 ounce, eight ounce. I think this is a quarter ounce, that's about as heavy as I'm willing to go. Again, I'm just using that for a little extra weight to throw it out there. But the bigger part of that is to make sure that I have a Keel Weighted hook so that I know this is going to run true, and nice and flat with this side down. So again, that's another alternative way of rigging it, basically.

John Carroll:
Rod, reel, and line. Okay. I'm not a big proponent of people going out and buying a new rod and reel and whatever, just to set up for a specific technique. There are a few techniques where it's very important, but for the most part, use what you have. I throw a lot of stuff on seven foot, this technique, seven to maybe like 7'6", I throw this depending on the type of cover that I'm trying to burn it through, a swim jig rod, or possibly even up to a frog and rod, a hollow-body frog rod.

John Carroll:
So, this one in particular, this is a Lew's Tp1 Black 7'2" Jig Rod, Medium Heavy, Fast Action, 50-pound braid with a Lew's American Hero. I think it's a 7.3:1 gear ratio or 7:1 gear ratio, basically. Gear ratio for this, I like a 7:1 or faster, because again, the point of this is to get this thing up on the surface and keep it burning across the surface, you don't want to slow gear ratio otherwise you're spinning your reel, super fast. Just the faster gear ratio can ensure that you can reel a little slower if you have to, but you're moving it fast enough to keep it up on top of the water and you can get those bass out of the nasty stuff when they hit it.

John Carroll:
Line 50 to 65-pound braid. Again, the same stuff that you would throw a hollow-body frog on. The location where you're going to fish, is also similar to where you're going to throw a hollow-body frog, just maybe not as thick of stuff as a hollow body. So you can use this, skip it underneath docks with this nice flat body. It's going to skip a little easier. It's a little harder when it has a Keel Weight on it, but it will still skip. Skip it underneath docks, burn it along like rip rap, seawalls, exposed vegetation, submerged vegetation, basically again, anywhere where you can throw a hollow-body frog, just maybe not the same thickness of mats. Not necessarily that thick cheese, but if there's some broken up mats or whatever, totally, this is an awesome bait to use in a situation like that. You can burn this thing super fast, cover a bunch of water, and get those active feeding fish, strictly a reaction bite, and they will flat out smoke this thing.

John Carroll:
So, that is the Big Bite Baits Buzzing Warmouth. If you guys have any questions, feel free to drop them down below. Again, my name is John from Mongo Fishing.
