Lobina Lures Rico®
This topwater bait consistently outperforms others. I see this fishing side by side with others on my boat. I think that it is the rattle and the smaller/more defined splash cup on the front of the lure. The hooks are insanely sharp use extreme caution unhooking fish. I am a self proclaimed cheapskate, but even I don't have trouble dropping a little extra $ on this bait...

My favorite topwater. The lower lip is cupped back slightly, and that creates a lure that spits like a shad skipping across the surface rather than a pop. Favorite method is to cast, let it sit for 20 seconds, then the slightest movement, then rip it across the surface as fast as I can while creating a smooth, spitting result. I don't want the lure bouncing wildly. Excellent hooks. Easy to wrap on new feathers at home if needed. Pretty rugged, and it catches a lot of fish before showing signs of wear on the finish.

Worth the money
I started using the Rebel Pop-R (Bone) and had good luck. Moved to the DI (Don Ivino) Splash and had better luck. When I received the Rico, I feel the action and look has increased my strike ratio.
