Default topwater trout

Left out this morning at 6 a.m. with mixed emotions about the heat lightning on the beach and the storm north of us(especially in an aluminum boat) but it turned out to be a good morning. Fished pensacola bay and used nothing but topwater. Conditions were perfect with the high tide and cloud cover. Caught 39 trout(all keepers by the way), but only kept enough for a fish fry for one of my buddies who was with us. We quit fishing at 8 p.m. and I gota say it was one of the best mornings I've had yet and by far the most exciting especially watching these fish blow up on top. I wish I could go in the morning because the tide will be right again. Here are a few pics. Keep in mind these were all on top and we were headed home by 8.
