A swing and a miss!
It’s so exciting seeing a fish blow up on your topwater lure…
But it’s so heartbreaking when you realize that they missed…
You were so close!
Now, this could have happened because of bad luck, but it also could have happened because you made a simple mistake that many anglers make.
During the adrenaline rush of seeing a blowup, it’s hard not to make it, but after you’ve done all the hard work of finding fish and getting them to strike, you definitely don’t want to do this and lose out on a fish.
Check out the video below to see what this mistake is and make sure you’re not doing it so you can land more fish.
#1 Topwater Lure Mistake [VIDEO]
When you see a fish blow up on your topwater, your first reaction is probably to set the hook.
However, many fish miss on that first strike and if you set the hook and they’re not on, you’ll rip your lure a few feet away from them and most likely ruin your chances of landing them.
Instead, you need to keep working your lure until you feel pressure on the line telling you that they’re for sure on.
Then you set the hook.
And yes, the fish may swipe at it a few times before they’re hooked up, but you need to be patient.
Doing this will help you land loads more fish.
