When the birds left I started trolling again inside and outside the creek mouth. I didn't see any fish. So I ran up to Moorman's and started trolling and searching. I was marking very scattered fish and when I got to the very North end of the flats I finally got a big hit. It was strong and heavy. I got it boated and it was a very plump 28". Yippee!!!!! Long time, no fish. I kept trolling to the trestle and right at the bend I saw fish swirling. Not chasing bait, just swirling near the top. I frantically started casting and actually saw several fish swim right by the boat! Two other boats were right there near me casting and nobody got a bite.
I kept trolling up river but didn't mark anything past the trestle. So I started trolling back. Past Moorman's and part way back to the Tennis Courts. Only marked very few fish in small bunches and deep. So I pulled up lines and started back. I checked Beaver Dam and Grimes on the way back but found nothing. I trolled around the mouth of Indian Creek again but got nothing else.
At least the day did turn out very nice. If I don't see you before then have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!
