  1. Man the top water is the best. Got 4-5 off it yesterday at wylie. That’s probably what I have the most confidence in. I use a walking bait vs a plopper, just never had any luck with them. Hope to link up one of these days. Happy 4th!!

  2. Man I would love to get some top water bites. I’ve tried but haven’t had the right conditions. But I’ve been catching them on other stuff so can’t complain.
