Early Early Morning Topwater?

Recommended Posts

Do you start your morning before sunrise with one type of topwater then change to something else once daylight hits the water? Would a steady buzzbait retreive be too fast in the dark for the bass to locate?

I have never thrown a buzzbait much at all, just haven't got the confidence in it due to not throwing it, but I have a friend who writes articles for some state and regional magazines and he has done a few on buzzbaits. He catches a lot of fish in the summer, all night long on a buzzbait. Personally, I've never did more than give it a very short try, but I do know several people that say they work great in certain water temperatures in the middle of the night.

It would depend entirely on if the fish were hitting the lure I was using before sunrise (nothing like stating the obvious, hunh :D). I'll change if the wind conditions change. The more ripple on the surface the more I like a bait to cut up. Like going from a lure with no spinners to one with spinners if the wind picks up...

YES!

Throw the buzzbait.

Cast and retrieve.

Use a trailer hook.

Great bait early in AM and late in PM and sometimes during the day.

I like the Cavitrons.  :)

Would throwing a buzz bait from 7 pm to 9 am be considered early early morning?

Bass can track down fast retrieved buzz baits in total darkness ;)

Buzz Baits are one of my favorite baits to throw at night.  Also, just right as the sun is barely rising, until it burns all the fog off the lake, I like to use a Rebel Pop-R or Bass Pro Shops XPS Top Water Popper.

Buzzbaits are perfect for pre-dawn.

And then after the sun comes up and around 9AM and then for lunch and then in the shade when the sun is out and in the evening and after dark....
