Other Ozark Stream

Recommended Posts

Guys, I drove to a northern Ozark stream in search of smallies and was not disappointed. I waded 1.5 miles up and back dowmstream and my body is a little achy today (back pain from surgery almost 3 years ago). To say the fish cooperated was an understatement. I caught over 60 fish, 35 or so smallies, 18 or so largemouth and the rest sunfish of some persuasion. I lost the 2 biggest smallmouth, one of which would have been a PB I believe, and biggest largemouth due to my own error. I used one bait all day.

I did it again, 2 2#+ largemouth, 1 16" smallie and several from 8 to 14. 25 to 30 fish total in about 5 hours of fishing. Really, this walk the dog thing is fun. I was always skeptical, but I walk on spinning gear and now have baits from a Sammy 65 up to Zara Spooks and Dog-X Diamante. It's becoming my favorite way to catch fish in the warmer weather.

Check out the Bill Lewis StutterStep 4.0 if you like a walk the dog lure.  I have the bigger one and the 4.0 seems like it would be a killer on this little creek you are fishing.
