Sunday morning decided to give Blackwater a shot. The trout in escambia are not stacked in the usual spots. Within 30 mins of pitching a jig for a large mouth bass wham this striper suprises me out of no where. After landing it I decided to go looking for specks. Found them stacked in a few deeper holes got my limit and it was time to. 4 were between 18-20 and 1 over 24, I was good to go. Will be returning to Blackwater on Friday to hopefully find them stacked in the same holes. Will post a live report on Friday.

Dang, nice striper man! Sounds like you had the trout dialed in too. Enjoyed the report, keep it up.

Near pond creek! Really just mess around with a jig. Caught most of the specks on jerkbait bait and trolling a matrix shad. First time with the matrix shad worked well. Compared it to a curly tail grub I usually use for specks and it out fished it this time. Will test again this weekend!

Def not a hybrid. The broken lines look like a genetic defect. Body is too streamlined and the mouth size is too big compared to the rest of the body.

Let's not start the hybrid debate. I swear it comes up everytime. No disrespect to GB or Snooky. It's a nice looking striper Reds. Keep up the good reports.

I know the place VERY well. Did you pick up any Trout in that +/- 30' channel running from just north of the mouth of Pond Creek to the large broken down dock on the west bank??? Very nice Striper!!! I've caught them there myself...

May I ask what color matrix shads you were using and what size jig head? I was looking at getting some of those myself. Also, do you use there golden eye jig heads?
