Here are some of my favorite topwater lures that are working right now:

Where To Use Topwater Lures

Knowing where topwater lures are most productive is just as important as which lure you choose and how you use it.

There are tons of different environments out there to fish but there are two main areas that to focus on to increase your strikes with a topwater in spring:

  1. Open Grass Flats
  2. Marsh Systems

If you’re on a grass flat around the edges of small barrier islands, make sure you are working lures over potholes and around the points.

In the marsh, look for the creek systems that have a lot of smaller baitfish activity.

I usually throw my lure at the points and the mouths of those creeks.

How To Use A Topwater

My favorite way to work a topwater is doing a constant walk the dog retrieve with small taps to create short darting movement.

If you’re going for numbers of fish that are in slot size, I highly recommend these two topwater lures:

Springtime brings hungry fish that may be a little more aggressive as we start to move into the warmer months.

Using a topwater lure during this time is both fun and very effective when targeting specific areas.

These two lures have been tested and are proven to work really well:

Another great video thanks. My question is could you use the slam shady paddle tails like the top water plugs? In other words could you retrieve the paddle tail faster so it stays on the top? Thanks.

Great information and good video Wyatt! The Super Spook Jr. casts further than any other lure I use. (Sub surface included.) I like to keep one handy. I throw them at feeding Jacks, Blue fish and Spanish when fishing the jetties in Jacksonville. It can get ridiculously fun!
