How late in the fall do you guys stop having luck with topwater lures? I see guys are hammering smallmouth on the susky now but never really fish much in the fall except for walleye at the river occasionally.

The two best topwater baits ive found that work pretty well are the hula popper and the jitterbug.

But honestly for the past 2 weeks, ive been catching 40+ fish each time on a ultralight rebel craw crankbait. they are just killing that thing right now.

good luck!

My last trip to the river last fall was November 5th. Managed 5 bass on topwater; Zara Spook. Surprisingly, 4 Large Mouth and only 1 smallie.
All through September and October fish were hitting ALL DAY on top. Got over 100 fish on a few occasions. Fishing from 9am-4pm.

If I use top water on the river I use a Torpedo in different sizes and colors. I think the props make a difference.
