Spring Topwater?? Never Miss The Bite Again!

Don't be the guy who misses the start of the Early Spring Topwater this year! It sneaks up on your every year but this time you're going to be prepared! The fish start keying on the surface much sooner than most anglers realize. These 2 tricks will make it easy for you to know when the bite has begun!


There are two key indicators of an early season topwater bite. The first is the presence of fresh grass growth. When the grass begins to develop, the topwater bite almost always follows suit. The 2nd is the presence of baitfish in the shallows. If there are minnows up shallow, its time to start throwing topwater during the warm afternoon periods.

Topwater Challenge! Can't Go Home Until Its Complete!

Topwater fishing is one of Matt's favorite ways to catch bass so when the call came in with a challenge he jumped at the chance! Catch a bass on a Popper, Spook, and Whopper Plopper before going home. Challenge accepted!

Topwater is one of the most exciting ways to bass fish. The whopper plopper in particular gets EXPLOSIVE strikes! If you haven't thrown one yet do yourself a favor and give it a try. 

This video is just for fun but there is still a lot to be learned. Pay attention to the cadences of the baits, and more importantly the changes in cadences. Apply that information to your fishing the next time you're on a topwater bite and you might catch a few more fish.
