Count them! Topwater favourite throws up seven new looks

The Ever Green OB-68 Topwater Custom lure has been responsible for many surface blow-ups from big bass giving chase. Topwater fishing certainly gets the heart racing when those bow waves start to appear just behind your lure, knowing that in the next few seconds you’ll be in the fight.

But of course, to ensure you get the maximum reward from this tactic, you will need to rig up with a lure that’s built for the job. Daiwa is now offering the Ever Green OB-68 in Flash Bream, Full Metal, Baby Bass, Flash Wakasagi, Bone, Flash Clear Shad and Green Back Glitter.

The versatility of colour!

The new colour spectrum has been developed so that anglers can match an Ever Green 0B-68 popper to any water condition or baitfish species they encounter. That versatility allows anglers to change up patterns fast, for example, if you notice the bass shifting their preference to a different type of baitfish and to make the popper stand out to entice strikes from fish looking for something different, or even to match changing skies or water clarity.

When it comes to surface fishing, colours are important, but so is a lure’s overall design, which explains why the Ever Green OB-68 is so popular. This unrivalled topwater popper features a sharp-edged face cup that produces both strong and weak splashing sounds, catering to varying surface conditions, and is designed to ‘spit, bubble and pop’ in response to every twitch of the rod tip. A perfectly balanced body produces tangle-free, arrow-straight casts as well as surface steadiness whether chugged quickly or lazily. The tungsten, brass, steel and glass rattle weights add to the fish-attracting noise. Each rattle has a distinct frequency, resulting in a hybrid rattling sound with broad appeal.
