    Today was the first day out in the last few days. Monday was a great crappie day and I had high hopes for a great bass day with the cooler temperatures. We started at 7:30am and headed straight for Stewarts Creeks where there has been a lot of bait in the few pockets near the mouth. After 30min and no bites casting crankbaits, we moved behind the Smyrna pumphouse where we were catching a lot of fish before it heated up. This time……no bait and not bass. We tried buzzbaits the entire time and did not have one strike.

    I got to thinking that I need to change my pattern, so I headed to Spring Creek and started fishing the channel bends with plastic worms and Bandit 100 crankbaits. We caught a few small bass, but did not feel like it was what we were looking for. As we were fishing we did notice a ton of bait everywhere….I was convinced there was bass there, but we were doing something wrong.

    Finally, we moved to a shallow flat in the creek and started catching fish pretty consistently! On one flat we caught 8-10 bass, all on Bandit 100 crankbaits, shad color. The bass were feeding on bait here and there on the surface! After fishing a few flats for a couple hours we moved to the back of the creek and caught a few on crankbaits and plastic worms.

    All in all, pretty good day. I think we caught around 15 with 20 bites. It took a while to adjust, but the fish are starting to move into their fall pattern!

    Nice update Brian. My dad and I are going to fish a bit after church. I am hoping to put him on a few fish. Prob fish a bit deeper because of time of day. Hoping they still hitting some crank baits.
