Corky Fat Boys are still working well if you can keep the mud mules from tearing them up. Here's another 28 found laying up shallow. 

Alternating between topwaters and a Corky works...and that's why I always carry two sticks. If I get a big swirl or blow, and can't bring her back up, I'll quickly switch guns and try to catch her below the surface. That blow up just told you a fish is there. Catch it.
