Seeking advice from those who know about fishing on top for silvers........ I have been out about a dozen times this summer and my go-to outfit is always an intermediate line with a pattern meant to imitate a baitfish, or an attractor pattern, but always intended to fish below the surface. I have tied up a bunch of floating patterns and I carry a floating line in my pocket, but I just can't pull the trigger and switch to fishing on top. What holds me back is that I just think that fishing below the surface is going to give me better odds, and it's been two weeks since I landed a fish. So I don't want to make it any harder on myself. My question is this ..... What water, current, fish activity do you look for when deciding to fish with a floating pattern? Does seeing more jumpers mean that floating patterns will be effective? Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
