i did not see ONE bit of schooling, and probably only a dozen or so bits of topwater activity...and the wind! dont get me started! 1-2ft rollers! ended up 21 strikes, 7 caught...tried a few other top baits, but the spook jr outperforms everything new i try...got 4 from TW today, along with a real beauty i'm gonna try tomorrow, azuma 4" 1/2oz clear...holy cow, if this thing performs like it looks it could...already have the cart loaded with 4...gotta test it first...if it sits bottom down i wont like it... biggest today was 1.71 crushed the spook while i took my hand off the handle to scratch some place private, which i wont mention where, but will leave it to your imagination... dang the wind! every time i check the wx, if it says 10mph, you can double it on the water...also, the ladies at the gate BOTH came out to collect my $2, and BOTH wanted to go for a ride in my boat sometime! i know what they're after..meow! also, i got crushed about 12ft from the boat, and screamed and clenched my buttocks...then i laughed...
