I wanted to fish Elkhorn today but I couldn’t find anyone to go with me. You need 2 trucks to make the float. David had a stomach bug and I sure didn’t want to be around him. Aaron and Sabrina were putting up hay. I damn sure didn’t want to help them. I have had my fill of that. So I went down to Stoner again. I was hoping for a buzzbait bite. To many times fisherman won’t throw a buzzbait on a sunny day. I found that there are days when they hit great. Just cast to the shade. I did catch 3 fish on a buzzbait and missed a bunch more. The creek was up just a little, but it has cleared. You can see down 3 feet or so. After throwing the buzzbait awhile I changed to a shallow stickbait and caught some small fish. I changed to a deeper diver and found that the only color they would hit good on was silver or chrome. I never did find the big fish. The largest I boated was about 2 lbs. I did loss several bigger fish. I caught almost all of my fish on wood and on a mud bank. The only fish I caught on rock were small Smallmouths. I did try a plastic craw and caught a few fish but the bluegill and green sunfish were worrying me to death. I didn’t have a great afternoon but it sure beat working in the yard. I finished the day with only 44 bass and to be honest most were dinks. Till the next post hope to see you on the water.
ps I am uploading a video of this afternoons trip on youtube.
