Fished a creek I have never stepped foot in before


Recommended Posts

I fished a creek that I have driven over for 25 years and always thought man that looks good but, just never fished it. Today I fished for 2 hours and caught 23 fish that was a nice mix of Smallies and Largemouth. This creek is a gem and I’ll have to try it again next year possibly lol

I love fishing those overlooked gems. Congrats on a great trip! Can't  wait to see more in the future.

Seriously I have driven over this creek for so long it’s embarrassing…..I always assumed it was too small and basically dry this time of year. It was small but had some holes. The fish were so tight to the logs and wood it was a joke. I wonder if that is taking place over on the river ????

Looks like a great trip.  I miss that creek and river fishing from when I lived in St. James.  Not much close by in KC.   

Yep agreed……catching a few very aggressive fish from a creek is pure tonic for my soul…..if I ever have to give that up I will quit fishing.

That top water is about as close as I've ever seen to what our creek chubs look like.  Nice looking creek too.

Jim it is an Owner Zip n Ziggy dawg bait that my friend painted for me. It’s a beautiful bait and ironically enough we called it the “Bleeding Chub” lol sorry but, I laugh every time I say or type that hahahaha

I was going to say, I looked and didn't see any lure makers making a walk the dog in that paint scheme.  It needs to be done by one of them because it looks great and seems like it would be highly effective.

For real, why isn't this color a thing?  I've looked all over and all I'm seeing with that cross hatch pattern on it is old vintage lures.
