It’s a handful


At 6 inches and 2 ounces, the Strike King Mega Dawg is not your ordinary topwater lure for bass fishing. It takes a pretty hefty rod and reel to handle this lure but it will also get you some of the most savage blow-ups you’ve ever had in your fishing.

I fish it on a 7 1/2-foot heavy-power rod with 65-pound Seaguar Smackdown braid and a Lew’s Super Duty reel.
