I took the kayak and fly rods out to Huntsville State Park on Saturday morning. I got started around 7 AM. I went to the right from the boat ramp. I fished along the bank with a small topwater fly trying to catch redear and bluegill. I followed behind a pair of bass fisherman for about 45 minutes. They didn't get a bite and all I got was a couple small bluegill bites.
I headed over to the dam and continued to try the popper and other small subsurface flies for bluegill with no luck. I tried throwing a popper dropper for bass with no luck either. I spoke to another pair of bass fisherman and they had only caught one bass. They told me a good spot to try for bluegill so I did. No luck again.
Finally, with no luck on bass or bluegill I decided to go fish around the stick-ups for crappie. I ended up catching a 1.5 lb. bass and 6 crappie in the 11.5 to 12 inch range.
I spoke to 3 other bass fisherman and none of them had caught a fish. All of the fisherman I talked to were fishing shallow for the most part. I didn't really see many people working deeper water.
All in all I was disappointed. I have only fished there once but had great luck catching big redear and bluegill the last time I was there. Oh well, that's fishing. I'll give it a try again sometime soon.
