Yesterday I was suppose to go out with a fellow I showed how I drift this past week, how I cut my bait, tie a good snell knot and on and on. But an electrical problem in the kitchen required my total attention to she who must be obeyed. I met up with him when he came back to the landing and took some photos for him and he gave me some bait for today. This morning I fished in the deep water, right in the river where my friend fished yesterday, a half a mile or so from the KVA power line at Hicks Creek. There were scattered Hybrids in the area and Gulls, plus a bunch of white perch. I concentrated on the catfish and white perch, but my jigging spoon caught a few of the racers. I knew down deep that there would be a large flathead among the perch and I wanted to catch a nice um, but in several attempts I failed. First time it pulled the rod down toward the water surface and let go before I could get to the rod, but it had gotten the fish head, next time it bent the rod down again and I have a video of that, but it didn't get the bait and another time I pulled the bait right out of it's mouth. Only bait used was white perch heads and other parts. Ended up with seventeen blues and about three dozen white perch, plus the Hybrids mentioned. Here are several videos of the action. Wonderful morning !
