I went down and fished in the rain from 6-8pm last night. With the warmer weather and the good south wind we had yesterday I was expecting more fish to be up in the creek.

First few casts provided a few quick White Bass to get the day going, ended up with 6 white bass by the end of the night. They wanted a more aggressive retrieve and were really smacking my plastics.

Caught 2 walleye, both in the 15-16 inch range. Walleye wanted a slower approach. Jig it and pause, jig it and pause.

The walleye were caught on a Berkley Gulp Shaky Shad, the bass came on a mixture of plastic sassy shads in assorted colors and the Gulp.

Also caught one rough fish that was new to me, it hit the Gulp shad as well. Not sure what it was. It was smooth and silvery, with a somewhat of a sucker mouth but not exactly. For all I know its an entirely new species, I wouldn't know the difference.

So if 2 hours I had 9 fish, not to bad. Water is still a little cool but its getting better as is the action. For the fist time I saw shad up in the creek mouth last night which is a good sign.

Sounds like the rough fish you caught was a sheeps-head. I caught a lot of them in the river in my younger years. They are very aggressive, especially in the spring when they're hungry.
