They've done a real good job of cleaning up the debris. We mapped out a path earlier this year and most of the trouble spots are clear now. There is still some stuff in the shallow parts. I broke off a solid trout that got my shock leader wrapped up on something sticking to the bay floor.

As for the topwaters that I used, I'm partial to superspook jrs and my favorite colors are black, bone, and chrome. On Saturday, the color didn't seem to matter too much because we caught fish on all three.

What mattered was the retrieve. With the wind creating all the chop on the water, the more commotion you made... the more aggressive the strike!
