Topwater lures are effective for multi-species fishing in June thanks to higher water temperatures that boost activity near the surface. Fresh insect hatches and more baitfish activity at the surface draw predatory fish up and enhance the effectiveness of topwater presentations. (Photo courtesy of Lindner Media Productions)
