Topwater lures shine during the warm water months, and especially in clear water on overcast days. But which topwater category to tie on? Poppers remain a great choice under nearly all conditions, but really excel when bass and are relating to individual cover elements like clumps of grass. You can fish them as fast or as slow as you want, and highly engineered poppers like the Megabass PopX allow you to pop AND walk the dog with a slight change to rod action. Walker instructs us on cadence, color and recommended equipment for this topwater system while keeping us entertained with some respectable bass along the way.
