Favorite Topwater

Recommended Posts

What's your favorite style of topwater for smallmouth? Poppers, walk-the-dog, prop baits, wake baits, etc.?

Walk the dog, poppers a distant second.

F13 Rapala. Twitch three or four times and then fast retrieve to cast again. I like orange because I see it in a chop.

I like a walker for sure...  A Sexy Dawg, Spook, ect. I like wake baits, but more for largemouth, they slam em!

Most productive for me, the "TopKnocker." Walks the dog well, and has a ball bearing inside that rolls along a track and creates a delayed "knock" after it moves and this seems to really drive fish nuts. Best part is it casts further than anything else in my box, much farther than Zara Spooks. Now I just wish I could find them for sale somewhere..

Megabass X-pod it can pretty much be morphed into doing whatever and everything in between.

For small stream, river smallmouth I like the Rebel PoP-R in Foxy Momma And Heddon's Tiny Torpedo.

For large smallmouth (My absolute favorite is Heddon's Zara Spook 4.5" 3/4 oz.

I haven't had ANY LUCK at all with spooks, AT ALL. I've only caught bass on Top water poppers

Bone colored super spook jr walked at a pretty fast pace with no pauses is by far my #1 smallmouth topwater bait and presentation.

Hula Popper for me, followed by Rebel CrickPopper, as well as the largest fly-fishing poppers I can find. 

I love poppers :)

Tough question for me but I'll go by which I use more. For me, poppers are tied with walking baits, Super Spook Jr. is killer but so are others like the old discontinued Yo-Zuri Banana Boat and the LC Sammy but the Super Spook Jr. is my favorite. A Storm Rattlin' Chug Bug is a killer popper but so is the Xcalibur Zell Pop, two completely different baits as one is loud and aggressive and the other more subtle. Then you have prop baits, the Tiny Torpedo has always been a great bait, and my favorite prop bait up until last year was a Heddon Dying Flutter, but now the new Yo-Zuri 3DB Prop, that is a smallmouth smasher, they absolutely choke it!!!!
