The Topwater Bite is Starting!

I hadn’t been out in the morning all week so I decided to get out yesterday morning and take a peek at the topwater situation. It still isn’t quite ripe yet but there are some bass hitting the surface in pretty good numbers. If it’s like last year, a lot of small fish will be hitting early in the topwater season and as we get into the cooler days of fall the big guys will start surfacing more and more. Right now, for me the topwater bite is kinda subtle. They aren’t hammering it on the surface so I’ve been just popping the popper a few times and then creating a wake and then a few more pops and more wake.
I caught as many waking the bait as popping it this morning and I probably caught somewhere between 10-15 fish with maybe 5-6 keepers and 2 small stripers as well. I only had a few minutes of battery power this morning but I made a little video of how I’m working the bait and a couple of fish as well as some keeper pics.
