First, Happy New Year to everyone! It has been a great year and I am excited about 2015 already.
Yesterday I went out with a good friend of mine for 5 hours in the morning. We headed straight to the back of Spring Creek and started casting a Heddon Spook Jr in silver and blue and a Bandit 100 in sexy shad. The water temperature was 55 degrees with 1ft clarity. I started at the flat with the PVC pole on the other side of the finger coves. I kept the boat in 5ft and we chucked our lures into 2ft. The first 20 yards, nada. Once we reached the shallow rocks BOOM, I had a good 3lb-4lb on and fought him for a few seconds before he unbuttoned. Moments later POW….huge blow up that never touched my bait. By this time my friend was ready to switch over to a spook(he also fished a black Hoppy buzz bait on and off). For the next 1.5 or so we went back and forth on the flat getting a bite or catching a fish every 10 minutes(I think we caught around 10 with good 2 keepers)! After it slowed down a bit I picked up my 1/8oz black jig with black/blue Paca Chuck and flipped the bluff wall. We only caught one short fish at the end of the bluff at the transition to the next mud bank. We fished down the mud bank with spooks and shad raps(shad pattern) and caught a couple more short fish. Once we reached the mouth of the feeder creek we could see the bass feeding if front of the rocks in 2ft-4ft. For the next hour we sat there casting our shad raps and spook catching 5 more with 2 more good keepers! After that died off we kept fishing towards the back. For the next hour we had maybe one bite with zero in the boat…..very odd. It appeared all the fish were loving the current coming out of the feeder creek(not always the case). The last hour we headed back to our first spot and fished with our spooks. This time we caught 8 or so with 4 more keepers..all in 1ft-3ft!!! It was an awesome short day on the water!!! The cold might slow it down a little this week, but the water temp will still be warm. We’ll see what happens tomorrow when I’m out…..gonna be COLD!
