When Should I Start Throwing Top-Water?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone it is spring here in east tennessee and temps are staying in 60 to 75 range depending on rain. I was wandering when everyone on the forums likes to begin throwing top water? Also, what are your favorite lures for top water?

Thanks for your advice!

I was at Norris Lake last weekend. I was fishing from the bank so i tossed a weightless fluke. I casted

Out and accidentally popped the bait on the top of the water and surprisingly I got a strike. I set the hook but it got off at the bank. It was a nice one. My gf and I went I Knoxville the next day to watch the Jason Andean concert and needless to say on the way down I made her stop at bass pro. Is it bad that I spent $130? Among my purchases were a spro bronze eye popping frog and the KVD sexy frog. I live in KY and I plan to start using them in late may through July. Happy fishing guys!

A Rapala 13cm original floater in Silver or Gold, let it sit on top wait for the ripples to die off and give it a twitch and repeat...Best top water bait I have ever fished...

I'd say now. Can't hurt. You never know. Summer time is typically good. There's fish all over the water column so who knows. You'll get a ton of different answers.

Throw top waters now. I SWEAR by floating Stanley Ribbits in black or white. Work em slow - pop em like a plug. The bass are hammering em right now for me (in North Louisiana).

My friend started throwing topwater since February and he has been catching fish somehow haha. You can catch some huge bass topwater in December slow rolling big topwater swimbaits.

First it needs to be at least partly cloudy or complete overcast.

Second throw a topwater toad and just reel it in fast.

Third if the bubbles behind the toad stay and don't pop right away, Start throwing topwater because it's going to be a great day for topwater.

 

Doesn't matter the temperature of water or the time of day. As long as the barometer is low, your going to have a great day fishing.

Disagree. I catch topwater on bluebird days, using dark colors (like black) consistently.

Never said anything about color. I said that those are the best topwater days. Anyone catches more fish on a cloudy, low pressure day.
