Fishing Notes

After returning today from STL for Cardinals games, I got on the water about 3PM. I headed to North Buck Creek to take pictures for our Fishing News “Featured Coves” article in the November issue. I fished the last several docks in the back of North Buck Creek without any bites. The bait fish are getting into the back of this cove and some of the peripheral pockets of the cove, however from what I could visibly see and from my graph, the bait fish we abundant about 3/4 of the way back in the cove. I saw many white bass feeding frenzies in the middle of the creek. I did throw the buzz bait into this feeding frenzy and caught a white bass on every cast. As for the black bass, I was not getting bit flipping/skipping the D-Bomb on docks SO I tied on a wacky senco and had a pretty regular bite off the ends of the docks. I would flip the senco, let it sink until I either got a bite or hit the bottom, then I would work the bait with short twitched back to the boat. My best fish of the afternoon came on a Crock-o-Gator buzz bait on a secondary point around docks, with bait fish in the area. After not getting bit in the first hour that I was on the water, the senco and buzz bait bailed me out from being skunked.
