I need some Mir-O-Lure Top Dog/She Dog tips for topwater plug action

I usually use popper-type topwater baits so this She Dog thing is new to me

Just twitching with a somewhat lose line makes the lure "walk on top of the water". I'm not a fan of topwater fishing, so I haven't done it that much, but its not that difficult of a thing to do.

Use a steady retrieve while pumping the rod tip to achieve a walking and gliding action. Pratice is the best advise on this one Atticus.
You typically hear that the rod should be held down and to the side to get the best action with walking baits. Maybe this is true in theory. In actuality, whether you are fishing from a boat or from a bank, there are many times when you cannot get the rod down to the side like that - something is often blocking the way, and it's a compromising situation to work the lure and to set the hook free and clear when you hold the rod down and to the side. Therefore, I just hold the rod tip up with walking baits. Usually, nothing gets in the way when you work the lure or set the hook with the tip up.
