6.18.21 Night on Beech Creek

Recommended Posts

With the site tournament being cancelled, TJ and I went down to Beech Creek. The river had a little stain and very little current but we managed to catch a few fish.

We started up near Burem Bridge throwing a texas rig and a wacky rig along the grass edge without a bite. We ran further up in the river, to the first island and landed a 5 dinks on a jig and a wacky rig and missed one on a top water, burning through the grass.

Right at dark we ran back to the deeper grass edge, hoping to draw on up on top water before the sun went completely down but zero'd. After the sun went down we started throwing a 1/2oz night time spinner bait and caught a nice smallmouth pretty quick. Shortly after that, we lost a decent largemouth after it rapped itself around a tree limb and got a few more bites in the area but didn't boat any of them. We went across the river fishing the log jams and caught another dink and a nice smallmouth. The smallmouth shredded the skirt on my spinnerbait and the bite was over for me.

We went down toward the spill way, stopping at several spots that are typically productive and only managed one dink largemouth. We ran back up to fish another area above Burem Bridge and caught 2 more largemouth, one being a solid keeper. As Ross said a few weeks ago, that place is tough to catch fish when they aren't generating and they stopped pulling water around 11 which seemed to kill the bite.

All in all it was a good night on the water. First time fishing at night in a while. Tight lines fellas and hope to see you all on SOHO in July!!

Nice fish Matt ! Glad you boys got on some. Boone sucked, only caught one fish that was barely a keeper but did get to listen to some good music while fishing around Lakeview Dock.

There are plenty of bugs down there Wes. TJ and I both had a giant bug fly by us that about spooked us out of the boat.

Boone always kicks our tail. Is it hard to fish right now with all the trees in the water? Good music always helps if the fish are biting or if they aren’t. Haha
