Topwater in the mornings

Recommended Posts

on the flats and edge of the flats -  seems like mullet run is starting in the river.  Just before sunrise been tossing topwater.  My largest Snook on 4lb test at 26".  This morning took a buddy who got two Trout, 21 & 22", both walking the dog.   Just got to love the excitement of a topwater hit as the sun comes up.  Different with the Pathy vs. the old Redfisher.. I could get skinnier in the Redfisher and in these waters a few inches makes a difference.  So I'm making really long casts.

  Water temps in the Banana still around 85 degrees in the am.  Reports of a minor fish kill (no oxygen) just south of me.  And besides having a blast catching fish, last week received reports of real grass growing - skeptical to say the least - went to a flat, climbed out of boat and walked around a bit.  Yes - not lush meadows, but real seagrass!  There is hope!    Tight lines.
