Got up to Beaverdam and saw some fish deep with just a few up in the 25-30ft range so I put out the lines. Nothing. I checked up into the creek and saw very little. Checked a few more spots on my way up to Moorman's. Fish were there but again scattered. I had some jumbo minnows so after a trolling loop I put down some bait. Only one hyped up 21"er. Back he went. Looked again on my way back but found nothing interesting.
Thurs 12/6. I'm starting to look around the HFB now. Seems like I see a few fish now and then. I got to Indian Creek again and definitely saw fish. More active than I've seen them yet. I started trolling and made a couple laps in and out of the creek. Not this time. They didn't even want the A-rigs. On the last time out of the creek I kept trolling up river and started a loop just past Hatfield's. Right over the channel I finally got a bite. A very energetic 25". Nice, but tossed him back anyway. Kept moving up river and got as far as the Tennis Courts. Lots of fish there so I put out my last minnows. I felt like the elevator operator moving baits up and down but a hour produced nothing. No surface anything all day either. I am determined.
