Finally, a day on the water when my heart rate climbed at times……and not because I was freezing to death!
Today I hit the lake with Jermie. We met at Fate Sanders Marina a 6:30am, ate breakfast and headed over to Stewart Creek to fish while we waited on Kevin Patin to join us. We started near the National Guard boat ramp casting A-rigs. The water was 48-49 and 2.5ft clarity. Fishing the rocks and wood we caught 7 in the first 45 minutes. At that time we headed back to the Fate to get Kevin and then hauled butt back the creek. The next 3 hours we caught around 8 more doing the same think throughout the creek! Most on A-rigs, but a few on Minnow 3.3 Red Craw.
Around 11am we headed to Fall Creek and only caught 2 at the mouth where the two points on the right(going in) face each other. One on a A-rig and one on a Lucky Craft Pointer. We fished all the way as far as we could go and did not see another fish.
Lastly, I was excited to try the back of Spring Creek. Everything looked good, water clarity, temperature was 49-51……a little cooler than I thought it would be. Maybe that is why we caught zero bass after 2 hours of fishing. There was no bait in the back and no fishermen fishing from the bank……I guess I know why now. I tried spooks, rattle traps, crankbaits and shaky heads.
At 2pm we headed back for lunch and called it a day. Total we caught around 18 with 4 keepers, biggest a 3lb! It felt great to be out when it was calm and the fish were biting pretty good!!!!
