Today, I tried out my new Emmrod Topwater Special that I ordered from Jeff McGovern and caught 4 jack crevalle on it. It worked great and allows me to carry another rigged rod on board, so now I can take four (or 3 1/2). It fits nicely on a clamp-on rod holder behind me, and extends between the hulls and the two rods in the flush mount holders, so it is completely out of the way while casting. Dick Sherman also caught a few jacks using more conventional gear. The sunrise today was awesome.
