Video: How To Fish Floating Soft Baits
The Hogy Floating Series was designed to be a true topwater soft bait. Designed to be fished on unweighted swim bait hooks and soft circle hooks, these baits can worked fast or slow for exciting topwater action!
- Vary your retrieve. Try a slow, steady glide over the surface but if that doesn’t get a reaction speed up the retrieve just a bit so the bait dives just blow the surface. The slow down and allow it to float to the surface again – a perfect imitation of a wounded baitfish.
- Fish your bait all the way in. Large, wary fish may not commit to a strike until they think the bait is going to escape.
- If you’re rigging with a circle hook, remember to let the fish hook itself. Do NOT set the hook!
