Do you have a favorite topwater lure?? Maybe a high producer and you want to share it with us?? I have to say I have few good ones that have caught most of my fish one is bassproshops topnocker color #25, my second is Mr Twister Top Prop, Tri Alive, in fire perch, Rebel popper in blue/silver, Manns crankbait size baby1 in crawdadbrown, Rapala orginal floater 2 3/4" in blue. BigBill

I have to say using the manns crankbait topwater letting it float up to the surface then cranking it again and repeating the reel"n"pause i had a 5lb salmon try to rip it off my line. I was fishing from shore standing in front of a deep dropoff(10') and I couldn't reach down I was on a hill with no net and I was alone I just let the line go slack he spit out the lure and I let him go. I have to say it was one of my most awesome times for sure. This place is a small pond feed by a big lake which was stocked years ago with salmon it gets the winter runoff and the smaller fish get trapped in this small pond and just grow and I have to say it was probably a new state record. I didn't know what it as at first I went home and looked in a north american fishing book and pointed out, it was completely silver with the ugliest mouth on a fish i have ever seen big baby sized teeth spaced apart. My point is I carry a net now one with a 4' handle yes a boat net when I fish that spot you just never know what you will catch!!!!!

My favorite topwater lure will make most of you smile. Good old Hula Popper is the one I go to when the bass won't take a buzzbait. Colors are yellow and frog. Lawdog

I love to fish a weightless plastic worm on top. I use 10 inchers rigged weedless. Pinch the worm's "nose" and cut it flat with a sharp knife or sissors. When you release the pressure the cut "nose" comes out with a concave surface that acts like a popper. This is a bait the fish probably have not seen much but it is deadly around weeds, moss, lilly pads or brush. I have caught a lot of "hawgs" like this.
