    Good deal

Frost Park). didn't do a bit of good in Dallas Bay, but I saw some fish shallow in the back. Sale Creek was a neat creek, especially in the back of it, wild channel swings. caught some fish on topwater, when the wind picked up the spinnerbait was good. The best bite however was on a basic shakyhead, 1/4oz round ball greenpumpkin worm, tail dipped in chartreuse on channel banks where the channel made a bend near shoreline cover (laydowns/stumps). I dodged storms most of the time down there and boat traffic was fairly heavy. Everyone down there was complaining about boat traffic but I'm used to Cedar Creek so I didn't find it to be too bad. Some fish were on the nest but it appeared most were done with a lot of males guarding shallow. water temps were low 70's, lake was rising and fast with all the rain. it will probably muddy up this week with all they got. Some fish are starting to show up on the ledges too but the better bite was still back into the creeks on laydowns and channel banks. on Saturday I caught over 20 fish but a lot of small ones, best was a little over 4#. Thanks to everyone on here for the assistance. It was my first time to Chick and I WILL be back, I'd love to hit it in February when the A-Rig is on.

    I finally got around to posting the pics on my profile for those who've asked to see pics.

    Attached are two pics of my personal best, 12lb 8oz! 26" long, 21.5" girth!

    The rest of the pics are in my profile album.

    [QUOTE=RangerZ520;561673]I normally don't chime in...LOL. Nah, I'm still going to chase the smallies at Dale! Been going to Dale since 1999, something about that lake, love it. Z520, JUST LIKE YA, BEEN FISHING DALE FOR YEARS AND SAD TO SAY IT IS NOT THE LAKE IT USED TO BE FOR SMALLIES BUT JUST SOMETHING ABOUT DALE AND YOU CAN`T HELP BUT LOVE IT. BEST OF LUCK!

    You are right though, I am spoiled now! Catching 5lb and 6lb bass here in KY just won't cut it anymore! I'm going to be spending a lot more time on Chick dialing it in more...

    Now I got to wait a while for my replica mount to get finished... went ahead and had a replica of my pb smallie made as well (6lb 4oz)

    Z520, JUST LIKE YA, BEEN FISHING DALE FOR YEARS AND SAD TO SAY IT IS NOT THE LAKE IT USED TO BE FOR SMALLIES BUT JUST SOMETHING ABOUT DALE AND YOU CAN`T HELP BUT LOVE IT. BEST OF LUCK!
