So I went out to a small creek by my parent's cabin. The water is way down around here so most of it was ankle deep and sandy. I had never fished this section of creek before so I decided to throw on a chartreuse Clouser aka Ol' Faithful. I always catch fish on this fly and today was no different. My first fish ended up being just a little guy (pictured below), but I did catch a few decent sized spotted bass and rock bass as well. Not a single smallmouth landed. There was one spot that hooked up with about a 16 incher and little smallie, but fought the fish as if I were a rookie. Terrible. So I called it a trip and went to the cabin to eat lunch.
After I sat around for a little bit I decided to catch some minnows and see what I could get on those. There was one spot that I passed up because it looked bad at first glance. Boy was I wrong! I threw a big shiner out into the structure and only waited a few seconds. Sure enough, the 18" big momma came out and she was hungry! After that I called it a day and went to take a nap! Rough life right?
