MirrOlure Top Dog & Top Pup Review (Pros, Cons & When To Use Them)


Looking for a new topwater lure?

In this video, I’m going to review the MirrOlure Top Dog and the MirrOlure Top Pup.

I recently took these lures out for a test run and was able to hook into some nice trout.

These are great lures that catch fish and won’t break the bank, but there are some cons as well.

I’ll tell you when to use each of them, plus I’ll do a little bit of comparison between these lures and some of the most popular topwater lures out there: the Rapala Skitterwalk and the Heddon Super Spook Jr.

If you’re considering getting these lures, you’re going to love this video.

First, we’ll cover the pros and cons of these lures, then we’ll cover when to use each one.


  • Great rattle
  • Casts far and accurately
  • Fair price


When To Use The Top Dog & Top Pup

If there is lots of wind and chop, use the Top Dog.

The bigger lure will be able to make more noise and is more likely to get the attention of fish.

If it’s a calm day, use the Top Pup.

The bigger Top Dog might actually spook off fish in this scenario, so the smaller Top Pup will do a better job of not scaring the fish, but still enticing them to strike.

mirrolure top pup review

The MirrOlure Top Pup and Top Dog are great topwater lures.

They’re fairly priced and fish love them, although I don’t like the treble hooks they come with, and they don’t cover as much water when being retrieved as some other topwater lures.

Have any questions about these lures?

Great breakdown Wyatt. I tend to use the Spooks, but could really hear the different tone on the pup.

Really enjoyed the video Wyatt! I agree with your finding on when to use the each one. I have found with topwaters the size profile sometimes has a lot to do with getting bit or not. If you need a smaller profile but still need the louder bait try a She Pup. Those are high frequency rattles and you can really hear a difference even on a long cast. If it’s really sloppy out try the She Dog. It’s a larger bait with the higher frequency rattles that make a lot of noise. I’ve been finding with topwaters you have to keep changing things up until you find what they want that day or even that hour. Please keep the videos coming!
