Top Water Time

With all the change in the lake we have seen this year, record numbers of fishermen, water temperatures going up and down; and a spawn that was hardly recognizable the one constant has been top water action! Yes believe it or not even the early frog bite was constant all you had to do was find the Primrose weed and you could fish a frog over the top and catch fish.

We are now into several different presentations on top water that is producing during different times of the day. The early bite on top is all about buzz baits; find a little grass and grab some noisy buzz baits and you can catch fish in those areas. I like the Picasso Lure buzz bait their dual bladed buzz bait is producing very well. Find some bait being chased and you open up a variety of possibilities for catching fish on top water. My favorite is a spook like bait, whether it's the traditional Zara Spook, or Lucky Craft Sammy or even the Duo Pencil these baits with their walk the dog action and tantalizing movement are catching fish over bait balls being targeted by bass. Persistence is the key you have to be committed to getting in a rhythm with your top water presentation, making it a go to bait for some extended period of the day; if you do you will reap the benefits.

It is also true that the never forgotten pop-r bait is as good as ever, it just catches fish; this bait has a tantalizing sound that is just irresistible and has forever been a top water fishermen bait of choice.� If you take a poll of top water fishermen you will find that 75% of those that fish top water prefer a pop-r; it's an easy bait to fish, experience is not necessary and even a young child can catch a fish on a pop-r! Lastly as we progress to the fall of the year the SPRO frog bite will take hold; it's an addiction, that explosion gives you a feeling second to none and is an addiction for many professional fishermen, and nothing is better than a SPRO frog!
