Cotton Cordell Pencil Popper
The best topwater bait for striped bass...no more needed to say except more big bass have been taken on this lure than any other topwater. Fish them fast, don't stop and don't set the hook until you feel the fish! On baitcast reels, don't turn the handle, use the rod to do it for you with every twitch. On spinning gear, 2 twitches for every turn of the reel handle. Those tips make all the difference and have come from 10's of thousands cast's worth of experience with fishing pencil poppers....and a few hundred big stripers too including a 47.5incher!
