Last week Jamie and I decided to go check out a creek in the northern part of the state. We had stopped in a music shop so Jamie could buy some new picks and were granted permission to walk in on some private property. It was super cold and super beautiful. We were down in a big canyon with huge icicles. The fish weren't huge, but they were feisty and pretty. All of the fish had all of their fins and amazing red stripes and pink gill plates. We only got to spend a couple of hours there and we both managed to catch close to a dozen fish. It was a nice change from fishing long leaders and heavy split shot. We have so many hidden secrets in the Ozarks and it was nice to get to take Advantage of another one of them!
