Stick Marsh & Farm 13

Capt. George Welcome
July 10, 2006
Stick Marsh-Farm 13 - Freshwater Fishing Report

The scene had been set as the history had predicted. A trip to the Stick

Marsh can be magical as the Stick Marsh can easily offer a day of catching bass

where the numbers climb well over a hundred. Such was the day that Craig

Alexander had experience while fishing with Scott in October of 2004. The report

given by Scott for that magical day was:

On 10/18/2004 I had

Craig Alexander from Midlothian, Virginia out for a day of sun and what would

prove to be excellent fishing. Craig is no stranger to the lake as he has spent

many days on the lake in the winters, however this experience would be his best

ever as we spent the entire day in the spillway catching fish all day long. The

majority of the fish were caught on Carolina rigged Senkos in dark colors. At

11:00am St. John's Water Management personnel  came down and lowered the

spillway to 2 feet, which of course cause the current to slow down, but the

fishing actually improved with less current. The best baits in the afternoon

where crank baits and Long As. We headed back to the ramp at 3:00pm after

catching over 175 bass.  

Craig

arrived ready and anticipating perhaps not quite the day he had had previously,

but certainly ready to give it his all. He brought Allen (Juni), one of his

employees and the idea was to catch a bunch of fish with hopes for a big one. I

have to tell you, the day was a tough one, however a big one was caught. As a

benchmark, we consider anything less than thirty bass a tough day.

As the day progressed we worked a combination of rattle traps and Senkos in

the SW area of the Farm. One of the few times I picked up my rod and cast, the

fish that Allen is holding almost yanked the rod out of my hand. As luck would

have it, the wrong guy caught the fish. Allen helped me get a picture of the

fish.



8-Pounds caught on a chrome/blue rattle trap

That was the only big gal of the trip and the day was called at about 1:15

from incoming storms. We didn't see anything close to a catch such as Craig

experienced before but all in all it wasn't too bad a day. The overcast skies

and a breeze kept things cool, and the camaraderie was fantastic.

See you out there.
