[/youtube]The last few weeks have been spent doing work, baseball, honey do's, and other family obligations. So with the wife and kids going to her parents for a couple days I had a free day to get some water therapy. After some debate Creeklover and I decided we wanted to try a new very off the beaten path creek float. We've been talking about it for years but never did anything other than short wade trips.


Up early and head out for Creeks pad to meet.Image
We load up the raft and get going.


The enemies grounds.

We grab some greasy biscuits.
Image

We pull up to the put in and it is a glorious morning.Image
Get the raft in and we're ready.
Image

Image

The first mile was pretty slow caught a few of these.
Image

And these. Image

We came into the big bend in the creek close to the end of the first mile and the bite turned on. The action was almost nonstop for the next 2 miles.

We took a little break for some shitty sandwiches and good beer.

Image

Image

Back to fishing.

Image

Image

Creek caught one of the most beautiful Redeye's i've ever seen.
Image


Why they call them Redeye.Image

As with all good fishing stories go, Creek lost a fish that would have gone 3+ and I had one jump off that was over 4 maybe as big as 5.

Some more Beers.

Well it's getting late in the day and we were getting to the home stretch about 1/4 to 1/2 mile from the take out and we see this.

Image

So we decide to unload the raft and take it over the top.Image

We won!Image

After log hopping we decided to push through to make the take out before the sunset. When we got there we found that there had been some dirt work done that had pretty much cut out the slope. Luckily the operator left one small path in the middle it was pretty rough but we made it.

War Eagle!

Nice TR. I floated a creek in that area about 20 years ago with a friend on a hunting trip for some sort of rare bee he was searching for.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Great stuff. Spotted bass are awesome, though I don't envy you that takeout.
