My dad and I went out for a few hours yesterday morning to catch some snook on topwater lures. The tide was rushing out over the oysterbars and there was almost no wind which made for a perfect topwater morning. Our first stop didn't produce anything but jacks so we made a move to deeper water on the flats. To my surprise the water in the middle of the flats was 68 degrees. that's 8 degrees warmer than last week and that's where the snook were a little deeper. Within 2 minutes my dad hooked into a monster that slammed his topwater made a run came up shook his big bucket mouth made another run over the oysterbars and we thought he got cut off at first but the fish just worked the hooks loose. That sucked at first but one cast later he hooked into another nice fish, then I got 2 in a row before the jacks heard all the splashing and came over to ruined our fishing. So me moved about 100 yards away to another deep hole and caught 2 more snook and lost 2 that jumped and spit the lure. We landed a total of 5 snook and a few 15-16 inch trout. If it wasn't for all the jacks roaming the flats we could have got more. That was a great way to spend the morning before I had to run off to class.
