I hadn't been in a while. Not since the remodel. Very nice. The parking lot is asphalt. They have two boat docks. Nice little ramp, not that I need it. Signs posted telling people not to swim around the launch area. Signs about the lake and what you can catch in it.
The water was it's usual semi-clear stained state. Usual level. It wasn't too hot or windy. Only a few fellow yakers out. This may be the day I catch a fish out of this place. Doh! Forgot my tackle box. And my phone. Oh, well. Can't text a fish anyway.
So there I am, with only one white Mr. Twisty on a white Roadrunner, and a plastic Zoom worm I found in the grass. And guess what! I finally caught a fish in Marine Creek Lake! A 10" or so bass.
That's it. A Mr. Twisty on a Roadrunner has been my go to for a long time. Today sealed it. Forget all that other tackle. A Mr. Twisty on a Roadrunner is where it's at. Okay, and maybe a Mepps french spinner type lure.
