Fishing Tip: Catching bass on top of the water

Many anglers would agree there’s an excitement that comes from using topwater techniques to target bass. There’s something to be said for seeing a bass strike your lure with your own two eyes.

But how do you fish for this species on top of the water? It mostly comes down to location and lure selection.

Target areas that provide good cover for the bass, such as weed beds, logs, big rocks, etc., that have a few feet of water over them. Cast a floating lure next to the cover and play with a bit before reeling it in.

When it comes to lures, select those that float and that are designed to resemble the favorite foods of bass, such as frogs.

Topwater fishing for bass works best in low-light conditions such as early in the morning or late in the evening.
