Cedar Creek, October 21, 2006
It was another great trip on Cedar Creek!
This was our second trip this year with the Watts family. Mike Watts and his wife Donna have been the ones organizing and making it fun for all of us. This was a special trip because Mike’s son Matt was home from Mongolia where he is a missionary. He had some great testimonies as well as stories. Matt has been to the Great Wall twenty times and it is still fascinating to him.
Anyway back to fishing! We started off looking in the Crappie Island area with nothing much going on. Don then saw birds working Key Ranch and we went over there to find Hybrids schooling in 7 to 12 feet of water. My crew managed 5 keepers and 2 throw backs and Don’s group caught 4 keepers and 3 that were too small. We went back south and didn’t find too much and after talking it over decide to head on up North.
Anyway we found some fish at Red Light point and not much else til we got to the Sunken Island where we found some Magnum Sandies that were cooperative. I left there and went to Enchanted Isle where I found a school of White Bass that we wanting to go home with the Watts family. Don came and joined us and I moved onto the Spillway Hump and found a good school on top of the outside edge. When it slowed there went on over to Merrimac to end the day and Mike caught one more keeper Hybrid there.
The Hybrids were caught about half and half on Holiday Sassy Shads and Lead Babies Slabs. The Sandies were all on Lead Babies Slabs in about every color we used but the Pee Wee in Gold Glow in the dark was working a little better. The water was 67 69 degrees and stained. Birds are working well and the Sandies were in 12 to 17 feet of water.
If you can get out right now is the time to do it. We launched this time at Fisherman’s Wharf but if we don’t get any rain soon we won’t be able to launch anywhere on the lake until Don’s Port fixes their ramp.
See you on the water!
E-mail me if I can be of any use or help to you in anyway.
