    Yesterday was 5th time fishing this summer.....wow I was getting withdrawal pains. Was on Gun Creek area by 6:30 a.m. & fished till 10 a.m. catching only 5. Brother showed up at 10 and we started drifting the mouth of Gun Creek. Ended the day with 27 keepers, biggest at 5#. Most were caught in 15' of water. All things considered it was a good day. Garlic salted shrimp was the bait used.
