Sunday was the perfect day to get out and do a little fishing before I spend this week on call at work. I got to the lake around 8am and launched my yak. I figured I'd head back into Nails Creek, but my gut told me to make the crossing and get into the Yegua. The wind was coming out of the Northwest early in the morning. Lake was fairly calm. I do miss the low water crossing at Newman's Bottom. Never had to worry about wind. Once in the creek, I made my way to my usual spots. I did rig out the fish finder for this trip. It wasn't long before the fish finder exploded with a large cluster of fish underneath the yak. It was literally fish in a barrel. I lost count of the number of crappie I caught, and only kept those 12 inches and above. I had two Jon Boats pass by and one kayak, but no one stuck around to join in the crappie madness. It wasn't long before I had 15 solid crappie on my stringer. I parked the Yak, had lunch, and decided that I didn't want to clean up a limit of crappie and went home with 30 fillets. I hated to leave them biting. I did catch one very small male white bass, but honestly, I don't know if they are making their way into the creeks yet. I'm glad I left when I did. The winds certainly picked up quite a bit and as soon as I reached the shore line, the conditions certainly deteriorated on the lake. Hope sooner than later, Newman's will open back up to the kayak crowd. In the meantime, I'll keep making the long paddle across when the weather is cooperating.
