View Full Version : 6/13 creek bassin\'

<p>Since I couldn’t find a float partner today, the wife was gracious enough to run the shuttle for me. I hit a small creek in hopes of catching some redeyes and spots. The rain made for a bit of a miserable morning, but it turned out to be a nice day. </p><p><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132385.jpg" alt="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132385.jpg" /></p><p>This little cave kept me dry for one of the waves of showers.</p><p><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132384.jpg" alt="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132384.jpg" /></p><p>Unfortunately, the fish seemed to like the rain. About noon, I waited out what would be the last wave of showers under some trees next to a nice looking hole. Once the rain slacked up, I started fishing it and caught 4 fish almost on consecutive casts. Two were dink spots, but the 3rd was this 14oz redeye.</p><p><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132390.jpg" alt="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132390.jpg" /></p><p>The 4th was this 1-15 spot.</p><p><img src="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132392.jpg" alt="http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a219/LanceS13/P6132392.jpg" /></p><p>After that, the skies began to clear, and the fish were few and far between. I think I finished the day with 10 or 12, most of them dinks. There really wasn’t any pattern to speak of. I caught a few on buzzbait, one on a plastic worm, a few on a fluke, and a few on a small hard swimbait.</p><p>Tough day overall, but the 14oz redeye was a nice highlight.</p>

<p>I didn't have my flashlight, so I figured what I didn't know wouldn't kill me.<img title="Laugh" src="/site/wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-laugh.gif" alt="Laugh" /> </p>
<p>BTW, Jeff, that really productive hole was one of the many "there's gotta be a fish here" holes that we pounded to no avail back in March. Two other fish missed a buzzbait in that hole, so I coulda potentially caught 6 out of it. Wished they woulda stayed that active all day.</p>

<p>Cool, I was gonna ask ya if that happened to be the same creek we hit on that last trip. I think that creek has some real potential though. Thats a huge redeye too. The scenery on that creek just can't be beat though and well made up for the lack of fish we caught on that first trip.</p>

<p>Nice trip report Lance. I think you have a big one in your near future but riverbassin.com cannot be held responsible for this prediction...<img title="Laugh" src="/site/wp-content/forum-smileys/sf-laugh.gif" alt="Laugh" /></p>

<p>I hope that prediction rings true, Drew. I've had my share of tough bites this year. I haven't even broke the 4lb mark yet this year...first time in like 4 years I haven't done that by June.</p>
