Stop Making This Big Topwater Mistake (And Catch More Fish)
Have you caught fish right at the edge of your kayak or boat?
That’s because predator fish like to stalk your lure until the moment is right to strike.

This is a simple trick and also big mistake anglers make when retrieving topwater lures.
You can make a nice long cast with a topwater.
But don’t get impatient and reel it in fast after it gets halfway back to you!
If you’re doing this then you are missing out on a lot of fish.
Make sure you do a complete retrieve the entire way back to you.
Predator fish will stalk a topwater until just the right moment.
As you are retrieving, your lure (the baitfish) looks like it’s running to hide towards you.
And that ideal strike may be as it gets closer to your boat or kayak.
Sometimes predator fish will attack a lure as soon as it hits the water but more often than not, they are going to follow it and then commit to the strike.
You can cast topwater lures pretty far but don’t get impatient with the retrieve.
Make sure you are retrieving your topwater lure all of the way back to you because sometimes predator fish will wait until the last second to strike.
Have you caught fish on the very last part of your topwater retrieve?
