Made the first trip down to Ship Creek this morning (6/9), bought my derby ticket at around 8:00 am and began to fish shortly after. I positioned myself right below the vehicle bridge downstream about 150 feet ( Away from the big rocks) Needless to say the fishing was SLOW
on the entire creek I managed to see 3 landed and 1 lost in the period of time from 8 am to 3:30 pm. I fished near the wire, by the vechile bridge, walked up to look at the mouth, all absolutely dead. I even walked up to the dam a couple times and only saw one red monster king swimming around. I did see one funny thing however, a guy managed to catch a seagull ... should have seen them grabbing it and taking the hook out of its beak, talk about funny.
*I saw no jacks landed or fought contrary to reports I've been reading, all the fish landed were a good 20+lbs with the biggest looking right around 30.
I feel confident next week the fishing will have gotten much much hotter, until then tight lines and happy fishing!
