Nothing gets the heart racing faster while fishing than an unexpected, close to the boat topwater strike!
There are lots of exciting moments in fishing, but let’s be honest, there’s nothing that beats the excitement of fishing with topwater baits. And there’s not many moments that can compare to when a fish takes your lure right next to the boat. Just watch this compilation of boatside topwater bass strikes if you need a reminder.
If that doesn’t get you exciting for fishing season, nothing will. Even though these kind of strikes are pants-soiling moments, it’s this kind of excitement that keeps me coming back for more while fishing. Topwater fishing is my absolute favorite. There’s nothing better than having a fish come up and smack a big plug or buzzbait.
The only thing better than simply fishing with surface lures? Doing it at night. If you’ve never done it, try night fishing with buzzbaits or jitterbugs in pitch blackness sometime. It’s a total blast, I guarantee you won’t regret it!
