How to Walk the Dog
Surface walkers are retrieved with a twitching action called walking-the-dog. Make as long a cast as possible, then retrieve the lure back to you in a straight line while twitching your rod. This will make the lure dance quickly from side-to-side. Each time you pop your rod tip, you will hear a sonic click coming from your lure. This fish calling rattle inside the echo chamber of the Dog produces explosive strikes.
How do I choose the best dog?
L&S Bait Co. provide anglers a choice between high frequency and low frequency surface walkers. Both are extremely effective and necessary in certain conditions.
In murky or choppy water conditions, She Pup®, She Dog® and He Dog® excel because of their higher frequency and buoyancy.
In good water clarity and calm surface conditions, Top Dog®, Top Dog Jr.® and Top Pup® with their lower frequency work best.
For non-aggressive game fish, use Popa Dog® to create more surface commotion and unique popping sound.
Always select a larger presentation when fishing for trophies or when casting distance needs to be maximized. When fishing, and short strikes occur, try using a smaller Dog for better hook-ups.
