What is your favorite way to catch a fish? Is it bouncing a jig or slow rolling a spinner bait? Maybe it’s watching your cork go down or relaxing while trolling plugs behind the boat or standing up in a tower sight fishing fat reds. Well here at Dockside TV our’s is with out a doubt TOP WATER. If you have never done it you do not know what your missing, and for those who have will definitely agree with us. The adrenaline rush after a close encountered top water strike is something amazing that should be on everyone’s list. Some times the technique of topwater can be the most effective approach on a particular fishing trip but typically it is used for the pure excitement. We use our matrix mullets exclusively and they should typically be fished at lowlight hours or under heavy cloud cover even a light drizzle is prime conditions. Another thing a topwater seems to do is yield trophy sized fish. Many anglers biggest fish in multiple species come from a topwater encounter. If you are ever on a fantastic bite using a jig or cork, do yourself a favor and tie on a matrix mullet and get the full excitement out of the situation. To see more visual evidence on this approach watch the Dockside TV “Top Water Time Bombs”
