- Therefore, a silver topwater would tend to be a better choice than a brown one.
- However, at night , use a black topwater, since black is the color that stands out most dramatically against the night sky to a bass looking upward.
- Chrome is an excellent choice in many reservoirs because it matches the colors of many baitfish, including alewives and shad.
- Sometimes a bright secondary color such as red or orange adds to the productivity of the lure.
- Try to spot sunken logs or trees, along with rocks. Fish will often come out of their elusive hiding spots for a tantalizing topwater.
- Try different lures if one isn't producing. The fish have to hit on something, so keep trying until you find the right one.
- Make sure you have the right tackle for the place you are fishing and the type of topwater.
- Remember to start at the norteastern side of the lake. This area should produce well, as it is home to the most life.
