Chub on topwater lure

Most likely your getting strikes from the feisty perch which are about the same size of your lure making it difficult to get a hook up. When to strike can depend on the type and size of the fish, sometimes you'll see a bow wave form behind the lure, the fish is interested, a switch to a straight retrieve might invoke a strike, other fish will smack the lure if you stop the retrieve completely (different strokes for different folks). Generally most fish do a smash and grab on surface lures so once they hit it should be time to strike before they try to spit it out.
