Big Trout And Reds On Topwaters

Despite all the Memorial Day boat traffic, which wasn't as bad as I expected, we managed to find a nice amount of redfish and trout in both Matlacha Pass and Pine Island Sound today. Angler Bill Zaring scored on the 20 inch trout and his buddy Jerry is pictured with the 25 inch redfish. Both these fish clobbered white Zara Spooks which are my favorite artificials nowadays. Topwaters are great all around lures for just about every gamefish that swims in our waters. They're especially effective in the mornings when there is less grass floating on the surface.
