This single rotating lure is the number one topwater bait on the market. It is perfectly balanced, has a very nice plop plop sound and comes with a shrink tube tail hook. The Top Raider can be retrieved at a slow or fast pace.
Always use thick diameter, heavyweight line for topwater fishing to reduce line drag, line sinkage and improve overall buoyancy. A medium/heavy power musky action rod of at least 6 feet also promotes better hooksets. After the cast, retrieve faster initially while simultaneously lifting upwards on your rod tip to lift as much of the line off the water as possible. Then, level off your rod tip angle as the lure nears the boat finishing up with the
rod tip actually touching the water. If the target is muskies, always finish with a figure 8 maneuver at boatside to trigger any followers.
