I went out for a few hours with my dad on Friday afternoon. We fished mainly by the storm water outlet mainly becuase there was alot of garbage floating in the water by the mouth of the creek that we didn't want to deal with.

We fished with fat heads either on a jig bounced off the bottom or on a lindy type rig. We each ended up with one fish a piece and one missed fish each both of which felt like much bigger fish then the two we caught.

My dad caught a small channel cat, probably 1-2 lbs and I caught a Sheepshead probably 2 lbs or so.

Both fish came on a fat head on a lndy rig that kept the bait about a foot off the bottom. Also both fish hit within 2-3 seconds of casting out the line. I thought maybe that meant that the fish were higher up in the water column and that they were hitting the bait as it moved past them on the way to the bottom so I tried a slip bobber at multiple depths for awhile with no luck.

It was a good day to get out, nice and warm with a nice breeze. We also had a bald eagle flying overhead most of the day which was cool to watch. Anyways its always fun to get out when I normally would have been in the office.

Didn't work the plastics this time, I need to get to the store to pick up a few more.

The creek is flowing pretty good right now but the river levels are pretty low.
The river is close to this level and with a little more flow from the creek.


There were lots of shad in the area so I thought there would be more fish. Maybe if I had some plastic shad with they would have gone for them.

If we keep getting rain like the last few days I am guessing the creek area will be a more viable option again. Hopefully the river flow picks up enough to flush away some of the floating garbage that is floating along the shoreline.

In one hour I saw 1 dead walleye, 1 needle, 1 condom, countless food wrappers, 1 foam cup, and an ungodly amount of unidentifiable crap.

Not this time, I am still looking for the mate to the other one I caught this spring. If you happen to come across a plain white sock that looks to fit someone with larger feet let me know. I'll sell you the mate for a reasonable price.

I also caught a surgical glove in April. It came to shore full of water so it looked like I caught a severed hand.
