Summer Topwater Fishing

 After two weeks of fires, being evacuated, and ZERO fishing, Tim gets an opportunity to get out on Clear Lake and do some summer evening topwater fishing! Summer evenings are often relaxing and exactly what the doctor orders after a long days work. Follow along as Tim searches for bass willing to commit to Topwater baits. 

Finding fish this time of year can be very tricky, especially with limited time. Tim maximizes his time by targeting grass flats with visible baitfish activity. Depending on the grass and mat density, Tim uses primarily four types of topwater baits.
