          I USE TOP WATERS WHEN FISH ARE FEEDING NEAR THE SURFACE OR WILL ALSO USE A NOISY TOP WATER SUCH AS A BUZZBAIT OR POPPER WHEN FISHING IS REAL SLOW TO TRY AND GET THE FISH TO BITE OUT OF AGGRAVATION. MORNING AND EVENING ARE SOMETIMES THE MOST PRODUCTIVE BUT I DON'T LIMIT MY SELF TO WHEN I USE THEM. I WILL ALSO USE THEM SOMETIME WHEN THINGS ARE SLOW TO RELIEVE MY OWN BOREDOM AS WELL BECAUSE YOU CAN WORK FAST AND COVER A LOT OF AREA.

          SPINNER BAITS ARE THE BEST MOST VERSATILE BAIT BECAUSE THE CAN BE FISHED AT ANY DEPTH OR SPEED BASED ON YOUR RETRIEVE AND NO DOUBT ABOUT IT THEY CATCH A LOT OF FISH.

          USE THE CRANK BAITS WHEN THE FISH ARE HOLDING DEEPER AND FEEDING ON MINNOWS AND CRAYFISH ON THE BOTTOM.

                  I generally use top water baits in the morning or evening unless I see fish chasing minnows near the surface. You can use a crank bait at pretty much anytime just make sure you get one to match the depth you want to be fishing at. My go to bass bait is a 7 in berkely power worm or gulp turtle back worm rigged carolina style. Just throw it in or around weeds or structure and let it drift to the bottom, real it in slow twitching it occasionally

                      Every time I fish! I like throwing top water before daylight or when night fishing. jigs and worms work anytime and are great cold water lures, slow rolling spinners in cold water work good also. Deep diving crank baits can get down deep to cold water fish. Come spring and summer, I just throw watever is in my box till I find what the fish are bitting best.

                        Morning and evening are best but on cloudy days they also work if the chop on the water isnt too severe.

                          Early morning, clowdy/dark days, and dark water.

                            I always have a topwater on, they can produce at the most surprising of times. Morning and evening rise are best but you never can be sure with fish. One time i DON'T use topwaters is when it is very wavy, if the waves are much over a foot then i use something else because the fish can't see them well when it's that choppy.

                              I've had good luck using poppers when it's raining.
