While I can't speak for the rest of the country, here in the Northeast we're being treated to a delightful summer cool-down. The humidity has dropped out, the temps aren't climbing much above 80, and we haven't been plagued by rain. That means the local rivers are looking good, and the lack of heat has kicked on the local smallie action. That's terrific, because one of my favorite things to do this time of year is float the Delaware for bass in the dark. You don't always hammer them, but for whatever reason, I think a topwater smash you only hear is a bit more exciting than one you see at noon.
