When the fish wanted whatever you threw at em! Caught fish pretty much all day walking a creek. Black bass, spotted bass, sand bass, blue gills, green sunfish, warmouth, long ear sunfish, channel cat, and even a NICE crappie thrown in for good measure. Fished Bachman creek from the 35 overpass, downstream towards the mouth where it empties into the Elm Fork. Clear running water, riffles and rapids galore, emerald green pools loaded with fish that may have never seen a rooster tail or a hollow body tube jig in their life. Until today! Jig with bobber, jig without bobber, Rooster tails, pick a color, any color, they wanted them all!
If the tracks in the mud along the creek bank are accurate indicators, there are enough wild hogs down there to fill a couple of smokehouses! Tracks EVERYWHERE! All sizes!! Steered clear of the swampy area where the police id'ed a gator in the 8 ft range.
Today:11/22/2016. Seems these fish in this creek like these off weather front days. Walked the area between Harry Hines and Denton Drive--same results. Fish everywhere. Got about 12 of these:
Another bucketfull of bluegills and sunfish.
But what kind of sunfish is this? Bluegill? Greenie? Longear? Dare I say--Redbreast? A mixd of all of the above or any two of the above? You gill and sunfish experts, to the front of the line please!:
I guess i will keep hitting this creek from Denton to the River until they just cease and desist!
