Catching fish on a topwater lure is, without a doubt, one of the most exciting ways to catch a fish! This rings true for species across the globe.
Here on Cape Cod it's possible to catch tuna and other species on topwater lures. However, targeting big striped bass is definitely the most popular.
The following clip was filmed earlier in June, and captures the most heart-pounding moment of my 2020 season thus far. I hope after watching this video you'll have a clearer understanding of how stripers track and attack topwater lures.

During this trip I was fishing with My Fishing Cape Cod member Alex Ridgway. In the video Alex is casting a 7 inch Lil Doc, which is an extremely effective spook-style lure.
The most effective way to work a spook is by zig-zagging the lure from left to right across the surface.
Sometimes it's best to work the Doc real slow, and other times it's best to work the Dock quickly. It can pay to experiment.
I hope you enjoyed this video clip as much as I enjoyed sharing it with you. Be safe and have fun this July Fourth Weekend!
If you are able to get out fishing, then good luck, and please let me know how things go.
