Started out jigging for crappie with pieces of cut shad. Caught two keepers at the mouth of the creek. Paddled up the creek and threw cut shad attached to a small bobber. Got a small bass to bite, but nothing else.
Caught several small cats using the secret 7 catfish bait. I can’t seem to locate the big ones in the creek anymore. Threw the weightless senko and caught a small bass. Pulled the bass over the boat while setting the hook.
It was a slow day overall, but got in some casting practice with my baitcast rod.
Got an early start at the lake and found more shad in the shallow water where I launch. I guess they are returning, since the flooded waters are going down. I threw my cast net six times, and it opened to a good circle five times. Got a few shad that were the size of small bluegills.
Jigged a small tree in the creek for about two minutes, then noticed the limbs were moving on the other side. A large snake was in the tree with his head down near the water. I got out of there.
I anchored up where I found some good structure on the fish finder. I caught a very nice bass with a senko.
I caught a few mud cats, two channels, and not much else. I tried the cut shad and some dip baits. I did manage to catch a small crappie while tossing a road runner around.
So, I decided to make one more cast before I left, and got a small bass sitting next to the shore. This one was caught on a road runner.
