We left last Monday (8-9-4) morning for Deer Creek. After getting camp set up finally hit the lake. Started catching some nice crappie 11"+ on a BANDIT, when I hooked in to this nice cat on the same bait. Experts correct me if I'm wrong, Is this a blue? Weighed in at 8lbs. Put up one heck of a fight probably took 3-4 minutes to land as I didn't want to lose my BANDIT (only one of that color I have and they don"t make it anymore ). Nothing else to speak about at Deer Creek, some more nice crappie and some small cats. Broke camp on Wednesday and headed for Salt Fork. Rained Wed and Thurs nights as well as getting raided by skunks both nights. Caught some more crappie not as big as Deer Creek and a few small bass. Was disappointed but will definitely be back as liked what I saw. (continued in post 2).
