Tailing Redfish With Topwaters

Right now the redfish are everywhere and there's nothing better than getting to hit something on the surface. I've always been a big fan of the Flats Walker lures from FlatsHQ, especially with the inline single hooks. These are as close to weedless are you're going to get from a topwater and that's especially important while our water is still warm and dead calm.  This is one of two tailing reds that my buddy Tim and I caught yesterday morning using a red and white Flats Walker.  When their heads are buried down in the mud, dragging one of these lures across their backs can be surprisingly effective.  Keep your retrieve slow with sharp twitches and you'll definitely get some attention.
