Cedar Creek, October 8, 2006
It was a blue bird day out there today and it was some great fishng! I had repeat client Mike Whaley with me today and the fishing was real good for us.
Started off at the Crappie Island Flats and there wasn't much going on there. We were holding in the area when we noticed birds working near the dam. There must have been around 100 gulls working an area of about 150 square yards and while the action was fast and furious on Lead Babies Slabs there were only a few large fish. For the most part, the fish were under 10". We did manage to get 1 keeper Hybrid and 2 good sized Sandies before moving on to bigger and better things.
From there we went to the Horseshoe Hump - nada, then to the Staubach Hump and yet another goose egg. After that Long Ridge and Merimac with another big "0" so I decided to try the Rock Boat House and the fish were there BIG TIME! We caught 10 more of Mike's limit and he caught 2 more Hybirds as well. When the action slowed there we moved it on over to Enchanted Isle and found another good school of nice sized Sandies with some undersized Hybirds mixed in.
We were doing okay and then I switched over to some of Bobby Burgess's slabs and we really tore them up after that! We caught and released anything under 14" and had doubles on more times than I can remember.
After we finished Mike's limit of big Magnum Sandies we decided to try for the last 2 Hybirds we needed so we went back to the Rock Boat House. I am so glad we did, becuase in less than 10 minutes he had caught his other 2 Hybrids and caught and released 4 more Sandies over 2 lbs each!
Looks like the time for trolling the Hell/Pet is over! All of our fish were caught on slabs in water from 7 to 17 feet deep and the fish wanted a SSSLLLOOOWWW presentation today but were very aggressive when they struck the baits. We had several break-offs as well but that is the way it goes.
The water was around 75 degrees and was still fairly murky. The fish when we found them were thick and weren't moving so fast we couldn't keep up with them. The gulls as I said are thick on the lake over schooling fish so have your binoculars ready. .
Be careful as the weather cools that you don't get hypothermia. Have fun and take someone fishing!
