My favorite smallie creek has been full of carp 3 to 20lbs and not a smallie in sight.untill today . The water was low and bareley moving I was using what i allways do green yumm tube crawl. and man, as soon as it would hit the water they would explode on it and knock it back into the air before grabbing it.I was there for three hrs and caught/released 57 smallies in a 1/4 mile strech of water they were mostley between 2-4lbs some around 1-1.5 . 4.3 was the biggest today.I was wondering is it possable for creek smallies to become overpopulated in a small creek because the bottom of the creek was coverd with smallies and the bigger ones had sores on there sides.(may be from the spawn but looked more like paricitic scares and raised red bumps.)... I did loose one that was an easy 5.5-6lbs she broke my line.and i could see more same size or bigger laying around the bottom but not hitting. I think they new what was up.... catfishhunter001 out.
