How to Select and Fish Topwater Lures in Wind

How many times have you parked your topwater setup because you thought it was too windy? Sure, if there’s serious waves, a topwater isn’t your best option, but the right topwater can get noticed in a decent wind. Lure attributes like sound, flash and vibration coupled with the ability to disturb the surface are critical. For Walker, the Lucky Craft Gunfish 117 is a hybrid topwater of sorts, being it has a built in popper and walks the dog. A big profile and rattle chamber further enhance being seen in less than calm conditions.
