  7. Been while since posted. Out early yesterday (before the crazies for the holiday weekend hit) on Lanier for some topwater schoolers. This one hit my gunfish 3x before ...more finally hooked up. Brought a wolfpack of 5-6 others with him. Nothing better as topwater as you know. Spybait also killer if not busting on top. Hope all have great 4th !!
