We are on the lake again. This time, we start at Yellow Creek and will fish down
to Indian Creek.
Today is different. We start not far from the ramp and on about the third cast
bang a hook up on a Buzz Bait and the fish went three pounds.
Good spot for spinner bait and crank bait along the rocks and might even throw a
shaky head. The funny part about getting out early on the water. When you get near a camp site, you smell the bacon
cooking knowing we have already ate it just has a differnt smell drifting through the woods.
There is so many boat docks to work, and fish just waiting to be caught and we
weeded through some small fish, but have yet to find the mother load.
The best part of fishing Yellow Creek if you are there around lunch time, they
have a great place to eat. I always get the fish and chips and my buddy get the great big burger with fries. The
only problem is that you will eat too much and then you will be ready for a nap, don't want to fall asleep and fall
out of the boat.
We get back to fishing and finish fishing Yellow Creek and head to Panther Creek
just short of Indian Creek. Both of these have been the ticket.
We find some grass out side of Panther and throw spinner baits and in no time we
start catching some real nice fish that were hiding in the grass. I got a hit and set the hook and what a fight
then the fish darted toward the deep water and my line broke. That was a hog I told my buddy and about that time he
layed back into a fish and this one came out of the water and showed us how big he was and when he hit the water
again he got off. That was two real nice bass that we could have wrote home about, you and I know it is always the
big ones that get away. We make it to Indian and decide we will launch her in the morning. Here we go again fasten
your seat belts and we roar back to the ramp where the truck is parked.
Boat loaded again and back to the cabin for a nice steak dinner with salad, bread
rolls, baked potatoes and corn on the cob.
Did I fail to mention that we eat like kings while we are at the lake.
Breakfast our last day will be sausage and french toast. Then we will decide if we
are going to fish or start back home. Some how we never can get enough fishing.
Everything packed we drive to J.P Coleman. We have always nailed some nice Bass,
Large mouth and Small Mouth. Launch the boat and make our way to the back. We have found a rock pile under the
water and it is holding some fish. Now comes to the part of what the fish want and that could just about anything.
We tried everything that we had tied on and some times the fish win and this is one of those days.
We think back and we had a great week end. Even though we did not catch anything
on the last day, we still enjoyed our trip. I think we won this weekend by just being out doors and soaking up
Mother Nature makes it all worth the trip. You can not get that at home.
Time to relax and start planning for another week end trip.
Keep The Hooks Wet!
