Who loves topwater lures? We do! Here’s how to pick the right one every time.

There are many types of topwater lures available for bass. Each one has a different action and will be better for different situations. In this video from BamaBass on YouTube, he breaks down how to choose the right one based on the conditions.

The two biggest factors, in his opinion, are the wind and water temperature. As he explains in the video, these two things change his approach and determine which topwater lures he uses. He also mentions the different seasons and how they factor into which lure he uses.

Another good tip from the video is related to how quickly to retrieve the lures. His knowledge of the topwater techniques is impressive and the video is worth a watch even for the most experience bass angler. Plus, the videos he puts out have tons of great topwater strikes that will make every bass angler excited and wanting to hit the water right now!

His “toad dangling” technique is another must-see. This is where he uses frog topwater lures and dangles them above the surface. When they see these, the bass come out of the water to grab the frog that’s hanging from a limb!
