Default Simpson River

Went out to the Simpson River this morning with FLfishR and tried out some of the tips I was given the other day. I ended up catching 2 specks (one caught on a mirrodine and the other trolling a DOA shrimp), 1 white trout (trolling a rattle trap), and 1 redfish (Mirrolure Top Pup). None but the white trout were keepers and I only managed to get a picture of the redfish (my first top-water catch!), but it was a beautiful morning!

Pics not working! Sounds like you had a good time though! Good job on the topwater red- I love seeing them explode when they hit!

Thanks guys! I was super stoked to see that red come up and slam my lure! Especially since I was expecting a speck.

I guess I'm not very observant... I don't think I saw you. I did see a guy in a yellow Malibu. My biggest speck was only about 14", I think it was the nicest looking speck I've ever caught... or maybe it's been so long since I'd caught one that I just forgot what they looked like
