I had stuff to do in the morning, but the rest of my day was open. So, I fish.
I decided I was going to try for striped bass or hybrids. That was the plan anyway. I idled around looking for shad and fish in an area that normally has some stripers this time of year. No soap.
Norfork is still a muddy mess from the Spring flood. Water just will not clear. Water temp was about 58'. Minimal wind. I found me a bluff and got busy. A few minutes in and I got a 16.5 inch smallie on a Crappie jig and 4 pound P Line. I got other bass on FB jig and Ned.
I decded to burn a little gas and run as far up the creek arm as I felt comfortable. I shut her down when the main channel on the bluff side was 10 foot deep.
Ned fish. wart fish.
swapped sides of the creek. Small Walleye on a swim Bait (only my second Norfolk walleye). Ned fish. Crappie jigs. More on swim baits.
some big stripers showed up and were blowing up, but nothing doing for me. Super Spook Jr got no love at all.
oh well. 32 fish in 5 hours was a Good time.
Raced back to ramp at 70 plus MPH trying to beat darkness.
