There’s no bite in bass fishing more exciting than a topwater strike. Fishing above the surface provides anglers a way to cover a lot of water quickly and agitate bass in biting. In this seminar, Bassmaster Elite Series pro Greg DiPalma breaks down a variety of different topwater lures from frogs, poppers, walking baits, and prop-style baits. Each lure shines in different conditions, and DiPalma walks through when to use which bait – and the right gear for the job.
