Topwater crawlers are made for just crawling along the surface with a nice steady retrieve. You can stop and go with them as well, but the steady retrieve works great for many different types of bass, especially largemouth bass. It’s probably the best night time topwater lure.
Rod, Reel & Line
Most anglers are going to use heavier gear with these lures, but depending on the size of the lure and the size of the fish in the body of water you are fishing, you may be using 8 to 10 pound test line and spinning gear or 20 to 30 pound line with a baitcaster.
