    Saturday I bass fished in the morning with 2 clients. We started in the back of Stewart’s Creek along the rip-rap passed the second boat ramp. We were sitting in 7 and 9 feet of water and casting to the rip rap and the point across from the rip rap where it drops from 3 to 6 feet of water. The water was 82 degrees. The water clarity was 1.5 feet. Casting on top of the point and dragging into the creek channel around the boulder rocks and isolated wood we caught one 2.5lb largemouth and one short fish on our 3/16oz shaky heads with green pumpkin Zoom trick worms. We move further back into the creek passed the 2nd rip rap bank and started on the left flat. We caught 5-6 bass including another keeper on our plastic worms fishing in 2-5 feet of water.

    Next I moved out and fished the point across from Stewart’s Creek boat ramp. This is the point directly across the boat ramp 100 yards. This point is in the same cove as the boat ramp. We parked the boat in 12 to 16 feet of water and cast into 4-8 feet dragging our plastic worms slowly. We had maybe one or two bites, but no takers.

    Next we moved out to the main channel point of Stewarts Creek that extends 100 yards off the bank. We had 3 bites and caught 2 on a Zoom 5 inch swimbait. I kept the boat in the 20 ft and cast up into 12 ft. The swimbait caught the two from bass that were schooling on the surface. They were close, but neither were keepers.

    Our next spot was under the Weakley lane bridge. The left pillar produced 6-8 bass and we lost several others. They’ve been starting to pile up and concentrate in the shade. I also believe the Jefferson Pike bridge is producing… addition to hybrid hanging out in the shade 10 to 20 ft deep. I’ll be out Wednesday to bass fish in the afternoon. We should see some great results.

    New to Bass fishing so to most this is probably stupid question, but what is a Rip Rap?

    Rip Rap is the rock you see piled up on the shore line to keep it from washing away.
