SOUTH MATLACHA TOP WATER ACTION ABOARD THE SEXY BEAST "LIL SKINNY"
Took ol' LIL SKINNY out on a hunt for top water action. Hit the west wall on south matlacha. Lost a nice red inside the mudhole on the outgoing tide. Water was super clean. Went inside a creek and found a nice snook, jump 1 other nicer one. Water got too skinny so I dragged out of there and kept heading south towards the power lines. Had my lunch while the tide was turning, then it was party time. Trout on top water is truly rewarding, I landed 4 nice keepers and lost a monster which easily could have been 24-26". Caught about half a dozen others which were carefully released. Then wind picked up and the bite was off. My go to lure of choice is the Yo zuri 3db pencil. It casts far, tracks well and catches everything.
