This Morning on Christmas Eve, I decided to hit The local Spot for About 2 Hours. The Plan was to wade and catch a Few Large Mouth since the River was up high and Current was Flowing fast, Alot more underwater current then what I saw On the Surface. I tried this For about an Hour and Since nothing was working out I decided to Hit The bridge and Target Panfish. Here i was Hoping for aytleast a crappie But even that didn't happen So i stuck Strictly to Green Sunfish, Pumpkin seed, and Bluegill. I managed 28 Bluegill on a Trout Magnet in Orange.

Best i can do With just artificials.

Good job at least getting on some fish, George. Like I said in the Busse forum, I usually avoid fishing the NSC or Busse WWD in such high water conditions.

Nice job dude!
