Default top water bite

top water bite was on this morning. 14 smallies from 8-12", all very healthy and full of energy.
using rebel pop-r, cast upstream and let drift, popping every 2-3 feet, they were hitting it on the drift, river is really clearing up nicely....(was fishing from the shore)..

Have you tried a buzz bait? Just wondering, should work good this time of year. Also a stik bait will catch them.

yep, tried the buzzbait, missed a big one, and no takers after that, went back to the pop-r and started hitting again..definitely need to try the stik bait, river is in prime condition now for that
