I broke out the ultralight this week and made my way to a nice stretch of Buck Creek. I caught over 30 smallies in 3 trips (1 short trip in there due to weather) all in 1 small 200 yard area. I have never seen anybody fish this particular area of the creek. Just downstream it gets hammered with fishermen. Most were in the 7-12'' range, but on Wednesday evening I caught a 16'' football & saw another that APPEARED larger in the water. I fished this area of the creek years ago with my uncle, but I had no idea it was loaded with smallies. I'll be hitting this spot over the coming weeks so If anybody around Springfield wants to meet up - shoot me a pm & we'll work something out.
