I went down for a quick trip this afternoon. I left my place while it was still raining but by the time I got to the water the rain had stopped.

I fished in the creek for a few minutes to see if a crappie or two might be in there but nothing there.

Switched to fishing the current seam. Started out with my gold 3" plastic Shad and 1/4 oz green jig head and it produced right away.

Within 15 minutes I had landed 2 walleye and 3 smallies. The 3 biggest fish came on 4 casts within 5 minutes of each other.

After the 5th fish was landed the wind shifted, the sun came out and then bite just stopped. Fished for another hour or so without a single bite after.

It was fun seeing the other guys down there so frustrated that they couldn't get a thing off live bait while I was hammering them on the Shad.

Here are the pics from today, I wish I had the time stamp on these to show just how fast they were coming.

First fish, nice walleye that didn't want to cooperate for the picture.

Fish #2 decent smallie. He was a chunky fellow.

Here is the biggest of the day, not the best picture though. It was bleeding a little from the hook so I wanted to get it back quickly.

That current seem is something else when they stack or stage there.

I wonder if that nasty east wind just pushed the baitfish right too you, I'll bet tonight the creek is full of food and the big girls will be in there after dark....can you say waders tonight!

Persistance pays off your out working and out thinking them critters.

Nice Job....NF.... I thinks its safe to say you are not a No Fish Fisherman anymore... smile smiley

I was on the point just to the left of the bridge. Once the wind shifted to blowing into my face the fish stopped biting. But the bait fish were popping all over the place so they were in there.

I figured that if I paid my dues I would figure them out sooner or later. This is the first year I have ever fished the river so I had some learning to do but its a good feeling to have learned so much. But I'll keep the name, I have grown fond of it.

I am trying to get out there today but it might be a hard sell with the wife today. We'll see.

CK, not sure why you can't see my pics, I posted them the same way as always using Photobucket. Can everyone else see them?

I knew I should have gotten out there, but it wasn't meant to be yesterday. Maybe today I can find a little time.

Fishing slowed some yesterday. Again it was mainly smallies for everyone. A couple small walleyes but nothing special.

You had to slow down your presentation alot last night, the guys who had live bait where just still fishing it right off the bottom and they had better luck then I did with my sassy shad. I just moved my shad as slow along the bottom as I could while still trying to give it a little life.

I ended up with one nice smallie landed, probably 15-16 inches. I also had one right up to the shore that got off (I call it a quick release). Also missed a nice fish it gave me 2 big head shakes and was gone. I would have liked to see that fish becuase it felt much bigger then the smallie I caught. Sorry no pictures today.

The river is dropping alot right now, it was down alot since Saturday when I was there last.

Probably won't be down again for a few days atleast.
