For attached your top water plug to your line, you can tie it direct, though I suggest using a simple duo-lock snap - not a snap swivel.

To fish these top waters lure, especially in top water, I like to run them a little more aggressively. When the lure hits the water I reel in about 3 to 4 cranks really fast, then pause, then 3 to 4 cranks really fast again. As you’re reeling, the lure is making all these bubbles and splashes on the water, and with the pause it gives the perfect moment for stripers or blues to hammer it!

When you’re using top water baits, it’s very important to pause just for a second or two before setting the hook. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve pulled the lure right from the fishes mouth pulling right away. Give the fish a moment to take the lure underwater.

I like the top water plugs that have the open rounded mouth to create that all that splash and sound, moreso than the ‘walk the dog’ style of top water baits which slide or zig-zag over the top of the water.

Until next time, good luck and good fishin’!
