Spinnerbait, weighted fluke, and a topwater are what I usually reach for.

What conditions prompt you to go topwater? I've fished in farm ponds most of my life, so a couple of lures are all I've ever needed.

Topwater is mainly for the post-spawn part. However, I've had good success with a buzzbait and prop bait when blind sight fishing. Oftentimes during the spawn, I'll put the trolling motor on high and cover water with a topwater. I wouldn't say that I catch a lot of big females doing this but you can catch a bunch of males doing it. They see something go buzzing by and they just react to it. If I come across a bed I'll slow down with a soft plastic bait.

Post-spawn is arguably the best time to throw a topwater. Those fish are hungry after not eating for awhile. That's the best time of year to catch a big post-spawn female.

Tube, lizard or Lake Fork rig using a stickbait, during.

Buzzbait, spook, chugger or squarebill after, then carolina stuff.

Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

Bubblegum, Crappiecakes, and chicken McNuggets.
Those will cover all year long.



Ok: Texas rigged red worm, chatterbaits, shakey head crawl.

Going to give some top waters a chance on Friday.

On the water
Senko or t-rig during the spawn, I'm looking to fish a top water as much as possible during the post spawn.
