Woke up early and decided to give Murvaul a try. Thought about Martin Creek as it’s not that far away and left them biting the other day. I’m into the deep cranking and after a big one so Murvaul it was. Shad on my graph everywhere near the bridge. Three crappie boats and three bass boats already there when I arrive. Not much going on but no wind and light mist and fog, water temp 54 degrees. Must have been two hours before I finally got bit. Slow rolling a 6xd in 12 feet of water along channel edge near where I caught a 10 lb bass last year. Fish slams bait and with my bad left elbow I don’t get much hook set and I’m just trying to hold on. It was a big fish, never saw it but I felt it. Pulling drag and staying deep. I’m reeling kayak towards fish when I feel my line scraping wood, Loosen drag as I’m tight against stump. I give line out hoping fish comes out but it’s already gone. Use plug knocker to get bait back, cut and retie.. Spend another hour and not a bite. Make two mile paddle to far west end looking for grass. It’s pretty much all gone.

Catch a small one on spinnerbait and miss one. Paddle as far up creek as I can go as beaver dam was end of road. Found water that was 61 degrees but no bites.

Find two duck decoys..so it wasn’t a total loss.

Make the paddle back checking out some areas I haven’t fished in years. Nothing.

Make it back to bridge and fish until almost 5:00. Finally catch one and head back in.

Back at it tomorrow somewhere.

LConn, this cheap elbow brace helps a lot with my elbow pain (I have bone on bone radiohumeral arthritis)
Another thing that helps is keeping my elbow against my side when I set the hook. I know that’s not practical all the time especially when in an odd position or weird angle.

I have also tried the simple elbow sleeves and forearm bands, but the Mueller brace with the Velcro straps above and below the elbow joint works much better.

Nice report man! cheers

I have been deep cranking more this year than I ever have and caught a few.

I did have one "Freight Train" on for a minute or so pulling the Ranger around so the it wasn't the "Thrill of Victory" but more "The Agony of Defeat" moment! OMG

I don't know the names of any of the places, don't look at maps, just look for less people.

The one I lost pulled the rod straight away... rod tip pointing at fish. I had to pull rod back to reach reel handle. I felt like a dork. roflmao
