Upper left, killer at night.  Take a sharpie and color all those other jitterbugs black, that's why I did, nothing but black, lol. 

Hope the bite is on, let us know, good luck.

that big blk jointed is my #1 producer hands down. but sometimes the greens work well in dim light and overcast days on frog infested areas. at night it really dosent matter. what ive found on dark nights is sometimes jointed or single action makes the difference and rattles or non rattles makes the difference.and i switch up retrieves sometimes a steady one works and other times short burst with a pause make the difference.and when i get within a foot or two of the shore i stop it and let it set for about 15 seconds and sometimes get some nice ones doing that.but that blk one is old faithful and has the scuffs in it to prove it.them chug bugs can be killer also on some nights and will produce some eyes.and them rapalas are a daytime and dusk and dawn favorites and another daytime killer are the heddon torpedos . the floating rapalas r killers and if you troll for trout and they r feeding in the shallows are close to the top they r the best imo. if any action is to be had i will post up some pics. gonna take the kids to lake jean in the day and the night is mine. ;D

I hear ya,   some nights a smaller bug and subtle retrieve will work, other nights they want it chugging ahead full speed.  I only fish jitterbugs at night, during the daytime I'll use poppers, hoppers, deer hair frogs or scum frogs.   

I've had some nice channel cats and bass hit the bug on a pause too.   

Looking forward to your report.

no hd just was having a problem posting to the f247 site so i posted it here should have stated hitting a lake(was posted under the lakes section here though in forums.). rivers not to my liking for topwater right now but the lakes are starting to hit the right conditions . we caught a couple more small ones and andy caught another decent one.i will post a pic of that one. and no mickeys chez lol. we werent killing them but had a great time for the first top water outing.would have taken a couple more pics but had my phone in ziplocs tucked up high in my packpack so i wouldnt give it a dunking while wading.had to go to the shore to snap pics. all were taken on j-bugs. no hits on my chug bugs.

Nice fish! Im too high strung to fish jitterbugs or topwaters at night. Ive tried and luckily I never hooked anyone only scared the SH%^* out of myself and anyone fishing with me when a jitterbug came screaming back in our faces in the dark.  When a bass blows up on that chug,chug,chug sound at the end of my line in the dark, TAKE COVER!! Cause i cant control myself, I cant wait till I feel the weight of the fish I have to set the hook NOW! and it rarely works out for me. So im not that into topwaters. Good for you tho, nice fish!
