The new topwater special performed like a champ. Combined with a fishing reel like the Qualia NLF30 I had no trouble playing and landing fish today. Of course my favorite soft plastic bait in saltwater the good old DOA shrimp came through like a champ. That little secret lure I was working with was a jewel as well. It combined a tiny DOA shrimp with a small spinner rig weighing in at just under 1/8 ounce. The little bait cast surprisingly well and was great for working shallow areas around oyster bars.
