Took dad and my boy for a little topwater action this morning. Dad wanted some fresh fish for the frying pan. Lots of blowups and even a seven pound gaftop on a skitterwalk. All in all it was a good morning.

Now thats "rubbin it in" LOL!! Been nasty weather here for about a month. I havent been able to get out, and the snook and redfish are on FIRE! To make matters worse, the Tarpon are in! I just have to take another with me to do the Tarpon thing cause I aint got the stamina to hang with a 160lb fish for very long anymore! 8O

BTW, yall have nice size trout! Most of the trout we get over here are in the12" range. When I start catching them, I usually move. Every oncein a while though, we get some monsters running thru here in the 26" range...

Now I love to take the kids and put them on some big sailcats with light tackle. They have a blast.

Have you tried the mirro-dine 2 3/8" 17mr18? it is a TROUT SLAYER!!!

right now, for us the mirrolure top dog in a nightstalker color has been hard to beat. also bone is a popular color. I'm pretty sure the trout in Fl. are wormy? right....... i have a couple 17mr18's but the suspending baits for us do better in the colder months. We mostly us "Corky's"

You got it. Our trout always have worms. I just dont clean them infront of the wife and kids. Once they come off the smoker, well, lets just say"no one is the wiser" LOL... The worms smoke right up with the fish.... :lol:

i hear ya! luckily for us because of the Mississippi river our fish don't have them, but we don't have snook either! i usually go after flounder, we do have a good supply of triple tail close to the beach this time of year. They come in to spawn, but I have not been down that far south this year :cry: those are some great eating fish! as for Tarpon, i hear those are mostly sport fish and often in Mexico they are killed and used for cat/dog food?
