Friday Flashback – July 9, 2005

Anybody ever told you to “Go jump in a lake”?

Well, although the figurative meaning may carry a bit of a negative connotation, it’s not altogether a bad idea during a summer heatwave. However, I would much prefer to go jump in a creek.

And that’s just what me and Dad did fifteen years ago this week as told in the original report and a slideshow from the fishing photo album.

7/9/05 – Pat’s Creek was the destination for Dad and me as I hit the water for the first time in over a month. We were not disappointed as our two dozen dew worms resulted in just over a dozen fish covering five species and four new entries into the record book. Dad caught the bulk of the fish including a Grand Slam Plus with five species (carp, channel catfish, smallmouth bass, white bass and creek chub).


So, there you go. Find a public stream or get some private permission, grab a pair of creek shoes, a couple dozen dew worms and go jump in a creek (actually probably slide in). Oh yeah, and if you are able, bring along your dad or a kid. Talk to you later. Troy

  1. You just can’t beat the fun of creek fishing. That’s how I was brought up on fishing. You can’t beat the fun of never knowing what you are going to catch and the fun of the mud and the muck and don’t forget the mosquitoes the bull nettles and the poison ivy and also the slick muddy banks trying to get in the creek and trying to get out of the crick ( this how it is some times pronounced ).
