Topwater time!

The rain is tapering off and the competition is underway. Overcast, calm conditions have set this morning up for a prime topwater bite.

Before takeoff I recorded the lure details for the Lures of the Top 12 story gallery with Garrick Dixon.

Not surprisingly the leaders all had topwater lures rigged and ready.

This morning look for Mark Davis to cast a 3.75 inch Strike King KVD Sexy Dawg. As already reported he’s boated a 3.5-pound keeper, likely on the bone color topwater.

When asked about his prime morning lure, Jamie Hartman pulled out a classic One Knocker Spook, a saltwater version known for its ability to call in bass from afar.

Steve Kennedy has been successful with a Spro Dean Rojas Bronzeye Frog 65. Yesterday we watched Bassmaster LIVE with Dean Rojas putting on a clinic with his namesake frog.
