Been having a FANTASTIC year so far. Most trips are yielding some nice BIG sunnies. Been targeting the creeks mainly, with very good results. Most days are good but there have also been only a few that the bite has been slow. Been catching fish mainly in 3 to 5 feet of water. A lot of fish were in their spawning mode and some were on nest. Water bodies were in good shape and with the recent rains have gotten even better! Fish were all caught on the "Bait of Champions" worms. All were released to spawn again! Catching some nice CHUNKS while fishing the creeks. It just don't get any better! fish

They are colored up good..... Very nice catches.... I'm hoping on one of my upcoming outing chasing gills I have time to get some of that Bait of Champions..... It definitely triggers those fish to bite.... Stay At'um....
