I spent about an hour this past weekend walking a local small creek to see what I could catch. Having never fished this creek before I wasn’t sure what to expect. The creek is no wider than a one lane highway and is very shallow. The deepest water I found was about 4 foot.
I used 6 pound test Berkly Trilene XL on an ultra light rod made by St. Croix. My lure of choice on this trip was a Slider grub, but I also really like a Mepps spinner.
Like any other creek in Indiana, I quickly found out the creek has bluegill, bass, sunfish, and carp. I’m sure there are many other species living in this creek too, but these are the fish I caught in my short time.
This is a great way to introduce new fisherman to the sport. The fish may be small, but they are usually very aggressive and easy to catch.
