What is your favorite topwater lure?

I get called a liar when ever I go on about how versatile this lure is in all water for me from salt to fresh, but my all time favorite is the Zara spook done up like a rainbow trout. I love it deeply. Your skitter pop is my number 2 if I had to call it that, but really, its neck and neck between the two.

I have a old antique red and white mouse popper. Works like a charm every time.

BUT....when it gets snagged for some reason, I have to go swimming for it.

the weedless frogs for weedy calm water. Poppers for open water.

Wrong thread, but in Lilly pads, I rarely miss with a carolina rig and plastic worm. I pin the bullet weight ahead of the worm about sixteen inches. When the bullet falls off a pad, and drags the worm straight down all natural like, they destroy it.

Heddon's Dying Flutter and Crazy Crawler, with the latter accounting for most of the strikes between the two.

The Original Rapala in different colors and sizes, I'll substitute the back treble hook with a skirted treble for better effect and action, it imitates a wounded minnow very well.
