Topwater Tricks For Early Fall

Do Red Hooks, Feathered Trebles, and different retrieves make a difference? Matt explores these tricks and more as he teaches how to catch more topwater bass this late Summer and early Fall. Do you want to catch bigger bass on top? This will make all the difference!

As Spring turns to Summer the bass become more wary of topwater lures. As Summer fades to Fall it can be downright tough to fool the bigger fish. Making these subtle changes will maximize your opportunities and in some cases, will actually get you more bites.
