Labor Day Weekend with Family

Recommended Posts

My wife and I brought our 2 boys (2 and 5), down for their first experience tent camping over Labor Day weekend. We stayed at our favorite campsite at Aunt's Creek and they had a blast. The lake was pretty busy, but not as bad as I thought it might be. It was still manageable and easy to find a cove to get in and swim. A nice bonus was finding a pretty good drop shot and spoon bite that I stayed on all 3 days, along with the boys catching about a million 2-6 inch bluegill and sunfish with the red wigglers I brought for them. Never caught anything big but plenty of action to keep it interesting and when you're on a pattern instead of just flailing around it makes it much easier. Everything went as smoothly as we could have hoped and as always we enjoyed every minute on the lake.

What was the pattern you were catching them on? deep docks?

we stayed at Port of Kimberling and fished Shooner creek and Fisher and didn't have much luck at all.

tried a spoon some on some deeper docks but I am by far a good angler with a spoon.

Deep trees, mainly cedars in 20-30 feet of water.

If those pic's don't make your heart beat a little faster, I don't know what to tell ya.  Simply magnificent.

Thank you sir and congrats on your monster!  My oldest wants to catch a trout now after seeing that fish.
