    On vacation this week so I got in a little Wednesday action at the B. The topwater bite on the popper was good for the big ones as I landed a 5.3 and a couple of fours. Numbers were tough as I only got ten by noon but I did not get a fish under two pounds. They were fat and sassy and a lot of fun. The busters were only sporadic from what we saw so we concentrated on the plastics in deeper water. I'll try to post some pics later. My buddy also got ten nice ones. See you later in September.

    i am so glad to hear that we were in the ballpark with 23 for the day. i left burnt out and a little dissappointed that we didn't see the wolf packs and didn't catch 50 each. the fish were nice and worth the trip every time. i guess i gave up on the topwater too soon. all mine came on the drop shot fluke and robos. my partners all but 1 came on split shot robos. the one was on a kastmaster on the only breakers we saw. i got so dehydrated, it took me two days to recover. barrett when it's hot is brutal. ok, maybe i'm just getting too old for that last climb out. sure hope it's a little cooler when i go next, sept 26.
