The speckles have finally shown up with some consistancy,for me. Today & yesterday (Sept. 28th & 29) the specks were ending up on the end of my rod instead of a skunk. As soon as the water temp fell below 75 degrees they seemed to pick up interest. Be aware,all that I caught were throw-backs except for one nice one that managed to spit the hook [sad]. Anyway,at least it looks encouraging for this fall.
