Indian Creek 9/14


Recommended Posts

Launched at dawn, cruised back into Indian creek and started to fish.  Began with a buzz bait, only had one small bass take a swipe at it.  There was some top water activity, scattered fish chasing shad and the shad are everywhere, shallow, deep, main channel, in the coves, there are a lot of small shad - should bode well for the future.  

I caught some very small spotted bass on a 1/4 oz Kastmaster throwing at the top water activity, but nothing sizeable.

Switched up to throwing a 1/2 oz bluegill colored jig in the trees, lost a pretty good fish that I never saw and after working that jig for an hour or so, managed to catch a decent smallmouth.  Only good fish I boated all morning.  

Checked out some gravel points, not much activity, and in general things really started slowing down after about 9 AM.  I hung in there until 11 AM and then called it quits.

Surface temp - 79

I fished Saturday morning and Sundsy morning last weekend. All junk fishing. Never found s pattern and bloated two small ones.  Finally found some crappie and worked them for a couple hours.  Lots of dinks.  


Shad everywhere and that's what they are snacking on all day.  Tough to get a work bite or even other plastics.  Tough tough fishing is what I keep hearing from most folks. 

Need marine repair? Send our own forum friend "fishinwrench" a message. 

He will treat you like family!!! I owe fishinwrench a lot of thanks. He has been a great mechanic with lots of patience!

Love ur reports Quill.  Thanks for the up date. I’ve also been noticing lots of shad everywhere I go.   I’ve really been watching  that water temp.  I’m excited for it to get into the mid 70’s. 

I did see a bit of striper activity on top and there was a guide boat back in Indian for a bit.

Hey Quillback, or anyone. On Sept 22  I'm gonna Bass Fish out of Prairie Creek ramp. Can you please give me some pointers? I have never bass fished Beaver lake. Thank You

Sorry - Just saw this - If it's not too late, my advice would be look for top water activity, or at least have one rod ready to go with a top water in case you see some fish pop within casting range.  I would try shaky heads, jigs, and drop shot.
