Was out today from 7am-1pm. My motor has been sounding funny so was gentle with it throughout the day.
We started at the mouth Stewart’s Creek on the long main lake point on the left. The water temperature was 47 as we began casting into 8ft-12ft from 20ft. Fishing with green/chart Crappie Magnets on 1/8oz Crappie Magnets jigs, we fished slowly for 100 yards letting it sink near the bottom and retrieving SLOWLY. We fished up to the bluff wall with just a few bites and then idled across the channel to the long point on the right where the PVC poles are. Sitting in 16ft and casting into 4ft we fished for 30 more yards without a crappie. One of my clients was fishing with a 1/4oz shaky head with a green pumpkin/green flake Zoom trick worm and caught a 2lb near the PVC poles in 6ft!
We laid our crappie rods down and motored to the back where the narrow part of the creek begins. Fishing the right mud flat that transitions into the bluff wall we cast crawfish shad raps and A-rig. After 5 minutes we caught a 1.5lb largemouth off the rocks that were creating a ledge on the drop. Moments later I caught a 3lb on the same spots with my A-rig. We fished down the bank 30 yards and then pulled the trolling motor up and idled further back. We stopped at the back boat ramp. The water was very clear and 50 degrees. Starting on the right rocks we fished the same lures sat in 8ft, casting into 2ft…..nada. We idled around the left island and fished the rocky point on the back side and caught one short bass on a Strike Jig Bitsy Jig black and blue with a green Paca Craw. We fished the rocky banks as far back as we could catching only one more short fish on a shad color shad rap. Lucky, is was a nice keeper back near the National Guard building.
I motored out of the creek to the cove behind Fate Sanders. The wind was ripping on left bank as we started with Minnow 2.5 craw fish, minnow shad raps and spooks. As we reached the back left corner my client caught a 4lb on his shad rap in 1ft! 50 yards down the bank my other client caught a decent bass on his Minnow 2.5! We had the boat in 4ft, casting into 1ft. Once we reached the end of the bank we packed it up and headed to the dock.
Fair day. We did not get many bites, but we did catch a few quality fish! I’m ready for a few calm days now.
