I have been wanting to fish for quite a while now.  There is a stream local to me that I have been wanting to get on.  The spring time had many floods and high waters.  I have a health condition that keeps me out of "dirty" water.  I attract infection.  This water is very shallow and since @drew03cmc posted his top water success, I decided now was my time to visit said stream.  It was clear, and shallow. I did no ot have any top water lures in my van with my tackle.  So I used a crank bait,( shallow diver orange craw) very slow to start.  A couple looks, partial follows, and that was it.  I put on a Rick Clunn shad shallow diver.  Caught a small Kentucky.   Nothing else.  I moved on down, and tried with no success.   Seen a couple just below a riffle, targeted them, my first smallie.  (Again). Nothing of size, and to be honest not much fight.  I hung up, lost a lure, put on a rooster tail.  That's what I got the smallie on.  Seen a couple small Walters.   It was getting darker quickly but I wanted to keep going.  My wife and daughter are at camp, and my son is staying at a friend's house.   I can stay out as long as I want, aside from the park where my van is, closes at dusk.  I managed one more, another green fish.  It was larger yet.  Gonna get up early, if no rain, I have another spot in mind.

I'm glad you could get out. It's refreshing to escape. Keep on them!

Nice! Congrats buddy on getting some creek bass! That spot looks like natural colored crappie jigs would get a lot of bites as well. Can't wait to see what you catch today if get back after them!
