  • 3/29 good day on the water

    Well I finally made it out! I was never able to get out over the holiday, My kids brought home a nasty virus and wouldnt you guess it…they gave it to me. So after sitting around thinking about fishing all weekend I pulled the trigger and took a day off yesterday to fish. Glad I did. I first started off at the lower end hoping I would see some sign of hybrids, never did so I shot over to elm hill marina. Fished the coves on both sides of the marina from 8-12 catching about 12 bass, almost all of them where right at the 13″-14″ mark. Best 2 fish where about 2lb a piece. fished crawdad shad rap. I feel like I could have caught a lot more fish but the wind was blowing my boat so fast down the bank It made it hard. I headed in around 12 and drove up lake to fall creek. I put in at the fall creek boat ramp…that was a doozy trying to figure that flat out but I managed.Fished the stumps for crappie, nothing. Went around the bend to the bluff wall on the right and ended up catching 7 really nice black crappie, and a hand full of Yellow bass and white bass. All in all Great day on the water and I got to eat fresh crappie and white bass!

    Cant thank this forum enough for yesterdays success. First time on JPP this year.

    Great day! Glad you managed to find something back there in Fall Creek. I had no such luck on Saturday.

    Thanks! On the way out I fished with a bluegill and chrome trap thinking I might get a good bite. nothing. Another guy came threw tossing an A-rig, im wondering what kind of luck he had with that back there.

    What do you mean by 13″ – 14″ mark? What color was working?
