September 26,2015 Super Moon, Super Day of fishing. Another beautiful Fall day, and the fish could not be hungrier. Started off at daylight catching Speckled Trout on Skitterwalks. Then Redfish, and more Trout, and more Redfish. We were catching Specks and Redfish on topwater lures for 4-5 hours. I do not remember catching them for that long, ever. We started catching around 7:00 and did not really try anything else till the afternoon. We had a blast, on every blow up. I lost 3 or 4 Skitterwalk lures to probably the Redfish? Not sure, because we did not get a chance to see them. Most of our fish were caught in 2'-3' of water, over shell and mud. Sight casting to shrimp jumping out of the water kind of was like cheating, but you take it, when you can get it. I saw 2 Redfish fighting to eat 1 shrimp. Everybody was tied up, or you could have thrown anything at them. Brock from Michigan, had not went fishing in fifteen years, and never caught a Speckled Trout or Redfish, but it did not take him long to get the hang of it. There were a lot of 19" Reds, and 14" Trout, but it did not lessen the excitement on the Topwater bite. Lures flying out of the water, or disappearing after a water explosion. When the bite did slow down, Live shrimp produced some good fish. The last cast of the day produced a nice speck on a Pink skitterwalk (I ran out of black, and white ones). Nick and his brother Brock had a great day of fishing together, catching fish pretty much all day.
