The last couple days I’ve spent in Stewarts Creek. Both Wednesday and Friday I fish for 6 hours each. We focused in the back of the creek passed boat ramp. Wednesday we caught 25 to 30 bass. Friday we caught 12 or 15. Each trip we started around the boat ramp in the back. We fished as far back as we could casting 3/16 ounce and 1/4 ounce Hoppy’s Flea-Flicker jigs in green, brown, blue.That was our best lure, however we also caught a few on Heddon spooks, Bandit 200 crankbaits in sexy shad. Throughout the entire creek we focused on the boulder rocks, points, and stumps in 1 to 6 feet of water. Are most productive areas were behind the island across from the back boat ramp where the boulders are. Around the riprap just further back on the left. And around the rip-rap 100 yards up from the first rip rap. There were certain areas along the rip-rap holding schools. We would catch 3-12 very quickly. Then all the way in the back where you could see the water trickling in we caught 6 – 8 in 3 – 5 feet before it gets really shallow. The difference was Wednesday the water was 55 degrees and before the cold front. Friday it was 49 degrees that after the cold front, hence the slower bite. The water was 2 – 3.5 foot visibility. It appears the down lake bite with the Alabama Rig is now active. I guess it’s time for me to focus down there to get one of these 20lb sacks.
