Walking Topwater Tips: Basic to Advanced

Learning how to walk the dog is the foundational skill of fishing walking baits, but you’d be missing out on a whole lot of bites if that’s where you stopped exploring. Jason starts with the basics and explains how to work your rod and reel to get the bait to walk with little effort. He then discusses the importance of speed and how to fish the bait fast while varying your cadence. Equipment is critical to the system, and there’s been some innovation in the use of line. We discuss rod and reel selection and how braid with a monofilament leader delivers better performance than just mono or braid.
