KKK past weekend
I was lucky enough to get out last Sat and Sun. Sat was OK with a lot of smallies but only a few that were decent size. By decent I am talking 15". Nothing bigger. Got out Sunday and started at the Wilmington Dam. Too many fair weather waders in shorts so I moved on. Water needs to cool down to reduce the crowds there. Went to Warner Bridge area next and came up empty handed. I don't know this area and need to spend more time exploring but it was now 2pm. Headed to my favorite spot in the State Park and it turned on. 30+ smallies, 3 walleye, several small channels and a huge flat head. Smallies were caught on plastic hellgrammites (Berkley power baits) and crawlers drifted on hook/ split shot. Flathead was also on crawler. 2 walleye were on jig and minnow, one on crawler rig. Biggest eye was 20" and smallies were mostly small with a few bigger ones mixed in. Water is low, clear and warm. Weeds are not too bad yet. Bite didn't pick up until afternoon.
