Which Topwater Baits Should You Throw? Ft. Eric Cooper

When it comes to topwater walking baits Eric Cooper has got it dialed! He's got different baits, different tricks, and a unique approach to fishing them. Come along as we dig into his topwater box and see some new baits. 

There is something magical about that explosive topwater strike on a still morning that keeps bringing us back for more! Day after day, season after season, the topwater addiction is a sickness all its own. We all know the power of topwater baits but most of us rely on a small handful of baits to find success. 

Eric's approach and varied arsenal has proven incredibly successful. If you've wondered about branching out and trying new baits, this is the video for you. See them in person where you can compare sizes, hear sounds, and listen to how each should be fished in this in-depth comparison.
