Such a beautiful day couldn't pass it up even if it were for only an hour or so. Met good Ol' Stuart Browwn for a quick trip to the nearest embodiment of salt water. It was late so I began with one of my favorites, a topwater I affectionately call the Beer Belly fly, Stuart threw a Spankbait. Neither produced. Since I have to ship an order to a guide in South Florida, I decided to test a little lagniappe I was sending him, a 'Scapin' Shrimp. Three short casts later and the fly I was testing was hanging from the lower lip of a small, but fiesty, speck. Stuart switches to the shrimp pattern, but the fish switch to something else. As dark approaches I go to an old stand-by, the Topwater Deceiver, good choice. I direct Stuart to do the same. For the next 30-45 minutes this little pattern produces several small to medium sized specks for us on topwater. Once dark sets in the bite slowed and Stuart and I leave, having caught a half dozen or better specks, and almost all on topwater, my favorite way. What a great way to spend a Friday evening, think I will go to a bar to properly finish it off!!
