On Friday the 22nd I started at Hales Ford Bridge and ran up to Indian Creek. It was just before dawn. I cruised to the back looking but didn't see as much as I had recently. As I idled way back I saw a few fish and quickly cast a crank bait behind me. Wow. I got a 18". Then I didn't see any more fish. I cruised back out and even looked up Little Indian Creek but there was nothing there either.
So I ran back up the lake and started looking again at Moorman's. I was marking some scattered fish and the water was clean so I started trolling around. And trolling. And trolling. Nothing was biting. Again there were several boats in the area but no catching. I kept looking all the way up to the flats but no dice. Again a few birds were fluttering around but no surface activity. I started trolling again and trolled the stretch all the way to the Tennis Courts. Nothing. Then I zipped down to Lynville and cruised all the way into the back. Nada. Lots of bait but no fish.
So I headed back down lake and trolled from Grimes to Indian Creek but only marked a few scattered fish. No takers. After looking around Indian Creek again I headed down to Hales Creek. I saw a few small marks at Campers and spent time casting and jigging but nothing bit. That ended it. But it was a real nice weather day and maybe the last nice weather for a long time. Since I'm almost a fair weather fisherman I won't be out this week. I also have a Thursday dinner engagement. Happy Thanksgiving to all! Later Joel
