I waited until the ice crystals melted from the windshield on the Lund before I headed out to Byers Creek. Found most of Byers Creek iced (second photo) over as soon as I went under the Perth Road bridge. So, I back peddled to the mouth of Stumpy and Cornelius Creek and set up for a power drift. Bait of choice was vacuum sealed Skip Jacks that bro. Coors gave me. I also had white perch and gizzard shad that were left over from the other day, but I did not use them. Planer boards out performed the rigs out the side and back. In less than three hours fishing, I ended up with five blues, one a teenager, one close to 12 pounds and the rest were eater size. Surface water temperature was 40.7 degrees and the gulls were having a field day picking up dead or stunned thread fins. Plenty of striper boats in the area, but they were not catching striper's, only blues. If they had not been there, I would have loaded up.
