I began using topwater lures in 2014 when I was introduced to it by a friend. My first catch on a topwater lure, Heddon Torpedo, was a pike. After seeing the amazing action above water from these pikes and bass (as well as muskies), I wasted no time in getting into topwater fishing. During my fishing trips, I topwater almost 100% of the time. The excitement of getting a strike on a soft or hard topwater bait is phenomenal and the excitement never stops.
