If you wanna catch reds on topwater, I suggest Badonkadonk topwater jerkbaits made by Bomber Lures. For the Big Lagoon area I'd probably opt for the 1/2 oz. size, or bump up to the 3/4 oz. size if you're looking for more casting distance. Gold with the orange belly, black with a chartreuse head, or chartreuse top & fluorescent pink bottom are my three favorite colors for redfish.

I don't think what you use is as important as how you use it. If you don't know how to walk the dog, check out youtube then practice, it's not hard.

1/2 oz Skitterwalk in silver mullet. Cast further than spook of same size and walk just as well.

zara spook puppy in bone white. They come with fresh water hooks. Either change out the hooks or expect to replace the lure often. I usually just replace the lure pretty often because every big trout or red that bites it tends to put a whoopin' on it.

Jeffbro: Contest may be in order. My Spooks, reel and rod against ur same size Skitterwalk, reel and rod for distance casting. Not knocking Skitterwalk in any way (I like Skitterwalks) but I think I can, at least, match ur distance. Agree, also, both baits "walk" very well. If we ever meet, I have a Skitterwalk story for you... So, the wager could be a Waffle House coffee. I can't afford to lose much more than that!!!
