Top Water Lures – Fast Action, Good Fights

Top water lures offer plenty of action.  They can be tricky to use.

Fishing Top Water Lures

Top Water lures work in any water.   These lures can be cast from a jetty, a pier. Surface casters use top water lures from the beach.  They are trolled from a boat. The depth of this bait is up to 6 feet deep.  A fast retrieval works best.  Steel leaders and swivels should be used.  Weight and retrieval affect depth.  Trolling should be at medium speed.

Choosing Top Water Lures

Lures should match bait fish.  Color, pattern, size and shape are important.  Running depth and lure action are also important.  Bright colors work best in dark water.  Lure action should imitate bait fish.  Metal lures will dart. Lures with bills usually wobble.  Larger lures can have agitators to stir the water.

Maintaining Top Water Lures

Because these lures are effective mostly because of the action, they need to be maintained.  Bent nose hooks, broken fins, bends in the lure all can ruin action.

Its good for any lure to have sharp hooks.  These lures are retrieved fast.  Dull hooks will loose fish.   Dive bills should in good shape.  Agitators should be working.  If you love a beat up lure, put it in a special place.  Don’t fish with it.
