Working a Topwater Popper for Fall Bass Fishing

On and Popping | Working that Popper

Changing the speed and cadence of a topwater popper is the best way to test the activity level of bass. Are they in a feeding mode? If so, you can seldom do wrong. Are they neutral and therefore, susceptible to launching a reaction strike?

Learning when to make your popper sit and stay versus when to cut and run is one of the skills that separates a true topwater master from the rest of the crowd. Have fun and experiment with these lures to get the most out of them.

Gear suggestions:

  • 6’6” medium action glass or composite rod
  • 6.3:1 baitcasting reel
  • 30lb braided line
