The Walking Baits: Top 5 Walk-The-Dog Picks

Image

Introduction: There are a lot of topwater hardbait options, poppers, chuggers, propbaits, twitch baits, wakebaits, and walkers. Even if you just focus on topwater walk-the-dog hardbaits there are over fifty different choices alone! There are lot of good choices and today we pick our top five most productive topwater walkers that we utilize in the majority of our topwater reel and rod field tests. These baits have proven to be not only effective three quarters of the year but can also stand up to the abuse of violent topwater strikes from a variety of species. Let’s count them down:

I haven't touched an actual Spook in forever. For topwater I usually just turn to the R2S whopper plopper, just easier to fish and it works. When I do break out walk the dog baits I always use the Vixens or Paycheck Repo twins.

What would Rick do? He would toss the Lucky Craft Gunfish.

Morgan on the other hand would be all over the Jackall Bowstick. :lol:

Although not a true "Walker" I love the Deps Buzzjet.
Otherwise, I have never seen a need to move away from my Zara Spook Jr.
And the original Lunker Punker is still my favorite for the big girls. 8-)

I think we need a new color called "Terminus Baby Bass"
Get your kids hooked on fishing, and they'll never have any money for drugs or alcohol.

Totally agree... I think that would be a great line! Who doesn't want more "Terminus Tackle" :lol:

I think Negan would be more into the "Savage Gear 3D Bat" or "Ima Big Stik" :lol:

I would have to include the Gunfish as far as where I fish. Great lure.

I am hoping Reaction Innovations will come back out with the Barely Legal.

Super Spooks and Jrs. are the real deal for me.
