  1. Biggest of 28 largemouth bass. It was a numbers day again with the fish averaging only about 12-13 inches. The bite was best at dawn (10 bass in my first 50 mins). ...more This is the second time in three weeks that I have caught at least twenty-five fish at Cross Creek, and for the third week in a row there were a lot of dinks.

      For them claiming it as a Big Bass Enhancment lake they dont do much for the bass period to make it a BB lake

  3. A Father’s Day bass on a steamy Father’s Day afternoon session on Cross Creek. The bass heated up in the afternoon, along with the air temperature. It was a numbers ...more day. This was the biggest of 25 largemouths—mostly dinks. They were hitting on the drop offs and the outside grass edges. A fun way to spend Father’s Day.

  4. Went out on Sunday, to Lake Arthur. Didn't do great, so when the chance to fish Cross Creek, the next day, arose, I jumped at it. did much better. I was amazed ...more at how clear the water was! I shoved almost my entire paddled down into the water, and could STILL see the other paddle end! anyway, the male bass are now on beds, in shallow, rocky and gravely shorelines, and I was able to land 6, plus a Crappie. the first bass, I had to work on him, and really convince him to bite, as, with the ultra-clear water, they are really spooky. Nothing monstrous. Average was about 14 inches, but I'll take it. Finesse was the name of the game.

      Thanks. Yeah, I was shocked it was so clear. I've never even seen it that clear down by the dam! I wonder how it looks down there.
    3. Drew H 0
      It is really cool to be able to see stuff in the water there, a big difference from Arthur!
