Finally got to get out yesterday evening after work to do some fishing so just went over to Kellogg and fished the bank area right down from the parking lot. Not too much action going on after the showers we had yesterday, pretty good breeze blowing in so it was at least just a enjoyable relaxing evening! Only hooked up with one dink spot, prolly 8 inches at the most but he hit that Spro Little John like he had attitude! He nailed it and I nailed him and snatched him in the air about halfway to the bank ;D had a couple other bites on a jig and pig, had a nice strike on a t rig wat/candy and my line snapped on the hook set!!! Oh well, it turned out to be a nice evening fished from 7 til bout 9 so it was just nice to get out! Not going to be in town much for the next couple of weeks so I am sure the fishing will start picking back up by the time I can get back out anyways! Til then......

Whenever I fished Kellogg Creek (from a kayak), I had the most luck along that drop-off that runs along the edge of the 'Beach/No Boats' bouys just off the beach area (that little beach was closed to the public due to construction then, I don't know if it's opened back up or not yet). I think you could cast to that area from the bank... if you can get through the bushes around to the right side of the bridge... My little cheap fishfinder always marked good size fish cruising along that drop-off and I caught a couple of decent sized spots there on chartreuse spinnerbait. Also caught several catfish and just missed a huge Gar right there (if you have any interest in Gar). It seemed like the fish hang out and cruise on that drop-off and eat the bait that gets pushed up against it from the wind, current, etc.
Big baits intimidate the fisherman, not the fish! <*\\\><( "I like big baits and I cannot lie")
