For a substantial portion of the year, shallow water bass have an antagonistic relationship with bluegills–they know that the pesky sunfish are a protein-packed meal, and they’re also an annoyance when the bass are guarding beds or newly-hatched fry.
Into this situation comes the ima HeliPs and HeliPs Grande, dual-propeller topwater lures that imitate the aggravating panfish better than anything else on the market.
The flat sides of the HeliPs cause the lure to flare on its side as it is retrieved, but its true appeal lies in the fact that it creates a tremendous commotion with only the slightest twitch, staying in the strike zone longer and calling curious and hungry bass from long distances.
A 30 to 40-pound braided line or 15 to 20-pound monofilament line is necessary for the best action from large topwaters like the HeliPs and HeliPs Grande. A 7-foot or longer, medium to medium-heavy casting rod will have the right action for working the bait and landing more of what bites.
A graphite or composite rod is ideal for fishing topwater lures.
