Fished a creek mouth east of Washington. Started at 615'ish, the first hour was hot for topwater. I hung 5, landed 3, and lost a really nice one at the net due to operator error. I didn't measure the fish since I can't keep 'em, but nice sized , probably 17". The one I lost was the biggest (of course). I caught/hung all the topwater fish on a top pup.

After the first hour things slowed a bunch. Caught maybe five more on new penny jerk shad and gulp shrimp. Those were a smaller class of fish with a couple of spikes and a few smaller keeper sized.

It was a Nice morning. The fish were definitely there at the creek mouth around some old structure. I should've gotten up 30 minutes earlier, the early bite was by far the best.

Same thing on the other side of the river. Hot early morning top water bite then it fizzled out as the sun rose, couldn't find a steady bite after 8:30.

What top water baits were good for you? I'd be right back in the same spot tomorrow morning at 530 if I were able

Sounds good, but if I'm not launching in the dark, I'm late!

I learned that Saturday. This is my first spring fishing topwater for trout. I'll get up an hour earlier next time
