This tiny creek has crystal clear water and there are so many big fish just swimming around! We never would have believed a creek this small could have so many quality fish if we didn't see it for ourselves. Today we're exploring a hidden creek that everyone overlooks in search of big Smallmouth Bass. Its an adventure full of big fish, shallow water, thick brush, and a whole lot of fun!
While kayaking a little creek in a farmer's field isn't everyone's idea of fun, it brought us back to our roots. Its important to take a trip or two every year that refocuses you on why you love fishing so much. We all grew up stream fishing so this drift reconnected each of us with our love of fishing. It certainly helped that there were big bass around every corner!
At the start, the plan was to explore this untouched section of creek from the kayaks. We weren't sure we could get them down stream and as it turns out, we got stuck a few times. We knew there were quality fish in the deeper sections but weren't sure how to catch them. With 3 kayaks, we were able to try a variety of lures and to our amazement, all of them worked!
Below is a breakdown of the baits we used to fool these bass. Fall bass fishing is incredible on big lakes and tiny creeks so don't be afraid to get out there and catch some fish this Fall!
