Fishing Notes

Today was another day of exploring the river. Fished around the 70 MM looking for schools of bait fish. Most of the time on the water was traveling to and from as well scouting areas that looked productive. There was a lot of bait fish along the long stretches of bluffs from the 50mm to the 70mm. Many of the creeks were very murky such as Cooney Creek, however there is plenty of bait fish in that creek. Not all the coves were muddy but some were.
Proctor Creek at the 55 MM had large schools of shad in the back last cove on the left with the bass busting on them. The water was stained.
Went into Bollinger Creek at the 43 mm and was it was slightly stained. There were many large schools of bait fish in the very back of the Bollinger. Ran to the back left cove of Pearson Branch and there were very few schools of shad however the back of the main creek there were plenty of baitfish.
Spent 30 minutes fishing the Glaize. The shad were migrating in very large schools in Watson Hollow, Red Bud and Pin Oak Coves in the Glaize. Caught a few on the spook and again had a few big hits that somehow did not get hooked.
Tomorrow the plan is exploring the area by the dam. Stay tuned.
