5/13- Chickahominy River

Recommended Posts

My dad and me launched out of the Brickyard to see what the action would be like. When we got there the water was 72.4 degs and the sky was overcast with a light drizzle, perfect topwater conditions. Wrong, I fished a G-Splash and a buzzbait around shallow spawning areas and cypress trees for 2 hours and didn't get a single fish, I did have one strike but he came unbuttoned pretty quick. While I was struggling to figure out why the fish wouldn't hit a topwater in such perfect conditions, my dad caught a MONSTER 15" crappie and a small keeper bass on a Daiwa shad-crank. After fishing the bank near the landing we headed up to the canal by The Haven restaurant and fished in there for a little while, we didnt catch anything but when we were idling out of the creek my dad noticed 2 huge blue herons thrashing around. We motored over to take a look and saw that they were both tangled up in some fishing line that was hung in a tree, so we got a hold of the birds, cut the line, untangled em, and sent them on their way. After saving the birds we went to Diascund creek and fished for a couple more hours and I finally caught my first and only fish of the day, a beautiful 2lber that hit a texas-rigged Kinami Nories bug pitched into a cypress tree. It was a tough day overall but it turned out to be a beautiful day.
