Fishing is very popular in Palau, with the most popular methods among the locals being trolling and bottom fishing. Personally I prefer a more active and participatory fishing experience, so I focus on surface and near subsurface lure casting (hence Topwater Game) with the occasional jigging session to keep things interesting. The topwater style I use is mostly with poppers, sliders, stickbaits or spoons.
For those of us with short attention spans, topwater fishing cant be beat because the whole time you are fishing, you get to watch how your lure is working in/on the water and make adjustments as necessary. The added bonus is when the fish strikes your lure, it can be spectacular with huge splashes and sometime fish jumping out of the water as they take the lure!
