Dam end - October 8


Recommended Posts

Launched out of Indian Creek, early in the AM, was hoping to find some stripers chasing on top, but there wasn't much activity.  Think I saw a couple popping shad, but not enough for me to chase.  

Spent some time chasing smallies, caught half a dozen, 2 were keeper sized.  What worked best for me was tossing a 3.3 Keitech on a 1/4 oz head in 20 FOW, letting it sink to the bottom, then slowly reel it in.  I targeted rocky points and gravel points, but the rocks seemed to fish the best.

Well I went out today and zeroed myself, well technically speaking I did catch 3 very small bass that putting all three end to end might have made a 15" keeper.  Thought I had a pattern down with the Keitechs but nothing doing.  I did have a good fish of unknown species break me off on a tree back in Indian creek.  That fish was on a Ned rig.  

Shad all over the place near the top, why the black bass and stripers aren't feeding on them is a mystery to me.
