The high winds have kept me out of the yak for the last few weeks. The winds were high today, but coming out of the North for a change. That meant the cove I launch from would be protected on the trip back. The water was dirty again after the rain the other day. I didn’t expect to catch much.
My black woolly bugger was still on my fly rod from the last trip, so I threw it a few times. Caught a small catfish on the second cast. I didn’t catch anything else on the fly rod using the popper. The spinner bait, road runner, and texas rigged worm all drew a blank.
I put on a white smim bait and hooked a nice bass in open water. I got it all the way to the boat, reached for my net, and it threw the bait and swam away. Something splashed near a tree to the right of me, so I threw that swimbait over there and something hit it just as it hit the water. Turns out it was another catfish just a little bigger than the previous one.
Water temp was around 75 degrees in the creek. I decided to leave around 3pm, since the water was dirty.
