Hire a guide to show you some spots and patterns.

Best thing I ever did 20 years ago.

I'm still waiting for the menhaden to show up in Blackwater, last year they were already here! Have you seen any yet? Give me good news...

And I love top water fishing, especially when you have a speck do a Polaris breech after it! That's right I used shark week terminology on ya......

It's been about 8-days since I was out. Waiting for the mud to settle now after 8" rain over 3-days. Haven't seen any schooling baitfish at all. VERY depressing!!! And yes, they are late. May have something to do with the very erratic temps back in the Spring. Water temp would vary 8-10 over a couple of days. Bass were confused as well!!! I'm in Destin now and Threadfins are swarming. According to the Forum, things seem to be picking up in Escambia so maybe BW will wake-up soon - HOPEFULLY!!!! TOPWATER at/before sunrise and watching that Spec/Red follow that Super Spook just before he knocks the holy h... out of it is what it'd all about!!! I love TOPWATER!!! You actually SEE the action from the very beginning!!!

Past couple of times Iv hit Blackwater in the evenings and haven't had a single boil on top water. They all wanted a suspending Mirrolure, and heaven forbid if I actually catch something on a jerk bait! Damn jerk...

Don't get me wrong, I like all my Mirrolures, my jerks, reddish spinners, etc., but NOTHING beats that 35" Red erupting on that larger size topwater lure. I'm a believer in "bigger fish like bigger baits" which is why I sling a lot of SUPER Spooks with stronger hooks. Got a new reel and rod also - not avail around here yet - Abu Garcia Revo Toro Salt (NaCl) spooled w/ 50lb Sufix 832 superline sitting on a matching 8' Abu Garcia Volatile rod. Use it on Chocktawhathee and BW. Good open water inshore set-up and can really cover a lot of wide open water. I can sling it so far that it's almost impossible to tell what the lure is doing!!! Having said all that, where are the Menhaden and the birds???!!!
