Had the day off yesterday and was fishing rain or shine. Only one other boat at the ramp, a crappie fisherman, and the only boat I saw for the entire day. Packed some extra safety gear in case I got stranded and hit the water around 11 a.m.





Caught 14 fish for the day, largest 5 lbs 1 oz. Most on hollow belly swimbait, the others on spinner bait. Tried topwater, t rigged worm, suspending baits... not a tap.

Water looks really clear. Surprised you could find water like that on Palestine

Yes, Flat Creek, and the water was surprisingly clear compared to Kickapoo, where I normally fish.


Lots of shad flickering around on top.




Caught this one with 4 inches of line out and tight drag... most exciting fight of the day. Missed several more as I was lifting bait from water.


I remember hearing about the fish having puncture marks on them. Caught several like this.


On a brighter note, someone is selling their place with nice dock.

I have no idea what is causing it unless it is a flesh eating bacteria. Below is another one caught that day.
