Topwater Action

Brandon Mabrey

The last few times ive been out fishing ive noticed that the fish are starting to hit the surface of the water alot, It should be about time for some topwater action before long. Top water fishing can be some of the most exciting fishing there is... Im gonna give it a shot on my next outing and I will keep you all posted on how it went...Tightest lines.....

lets use this site to our advantage and maybe see how the bass act towards different lures on the west coast vs east coast and also for up north compared to the south, maybe it will help us all become better fisherman and try to get a pattern on the fish at different times of the year by looking back on your previous post from year to year......and it doesnt just have to be bass it can be any species of fish....

I live in North carolina. I noticed the first frogs in the woods about 6 weeks ago. Shortly thereafter, I started gettings ome topwater bites. I;ve noticed the topwater only really starts once the fish are off the spawning beds, which only started happening recently (we had a late spawn).

I got a few Bowfin on topwater last year, and my buddy got one already this year. I'll be throwing topwater at night this week and I'll let you know how it goes. You're right brandon, it is the ebst fishing. Ever seen a pike crush a topwater lure? It;s amazing.

hey brandon! can't say i've ever caught anything on a topwater lure. i'm missing out! i've always wanted to but all the times that i've tried i guess the conditions were never right. i'm going up to ohio to do some creek/ stream fishing, and want to try it then. wish me luck!

crank/wake baits like bass pro shops egg, rapala DT-FAT 1, STRIKE KING WAKE SHADand  zoom flukes in the right color work great.
