    Default Lower Trinity

    Got another invitation to go catch some early morning Specks! Decided to fish closer to home rather than running to Upper Trinity, figuring it would be too crowded. First cast was about 10 after 6am. Very light breeze, throwing a Pink Spook Jr. Partner threw a Limetreuse Spook Jr. Second cast, slow steady retrieve, resulted in a 15 1/2" speck. Caught two more, 15 1/2" and a 16 1/2". Once the sun came up, party was over. Fish were short striking and had a lot of slaps, few takers. We tried a few other spots to no avail. In by 9:30 with three keepers. Beautiful sunrise and a nice relaxing morning.

    Just top waters , Moe ? Slapping those tops means give them a plastic or subsurface . I've learned long ago if they just slap a Topwater plug , they will gobble a subsurface plug or plastic .

    If this was a meat haul trip, I probably would have switched, besides it was fun catching them on top in the dark. We were out to just catch a few and relax! Mission accomplished!

    It's an effort and a good distance to drag my boat to the bay to fish just 3 1/2 hours .... Hard to wrap my head around it . That's why I fish all day . Besides , I love fishing . I need to be wealthy and have my hired help do all the prep work and cleaning . Sounds like a nice no pressure fishing morning for you . That is cool catching fish on top waters in the dark .
