Today... I made a short run in the creek for a quick trip...
Caught 3 smallies and 2 black perch.
Going to eat good again later today.
Below is a pic of one of the nicer smallies.
You know that feeling when you are walking a hillside and you see a place just ahead that has maiden hair fern, maple and poplar, and you just know something good is about to happen...
Similar to this...
I started down a small side creek to the main creek... where the side creek merges into the main creek there is a nice deep hole of water, with logs and bluff rocks..
I made a long cast with my ultralight rod... had a rebel pop-r topwater bait on... it landed in the edge of the deep hole by a log, and a couple of twitches later (EXPLOSION !!!) Smallie ON !
Love it... this is one of the few things I \"may\" actually like better than seng hunting.
