Could anyone tell me if there is consistent topwater action in the a.m. and p.m.?

I've personally seen more topwater fish in the evening but they've mostly been smaller fish.  I think the other reason is there is not near the boat traffic looking for them like in the morning.  I think you can find them either time as long as the wind is cooperating.

I've seen the shad surface in the evening.  Dragging lures in the school with no luck.  Top water, Sassy shad and A-rigs.  Its like they are surfacing to get oxygen rather than being pushed up by fish.

We have been seeing top water action in the mornings between 8 and 10 am out in deep water.  I've hit the banks a few times but no top water luck.

Fish were busting surface this past week end and today in the middle of the lake.  Fish were also within 10 feet of the surface and would hit anything you threw in there.

Upside:  lots of fish. Downside:  small fish

Bigger fish are deeper (35 feet or so)

To me there is two kinds of top water fishing . One is throwing top water lures to the rocky banks, points, and anything different along the banks . Doing this you are trying to promote a strike from a fish you don't see . Normally these fish will come up no more than 10 feet to strike a lure. The other and most popular top water is schooling fish that are surfacing . These fish are easy to catch and can be caught on about any lure .
Good fishing!

 I think. regarding topwater, the selection is based on weather and water conditions as well as preferences of the fish.

I did well in the AM, just before and right at sunrise. And they were all good sized overs....just off of rocky points.
