Apalachicola River - White City
« on: September 21, 2015, 12:24:27 PM »

Saturday Sep 19
My partner and I fished the annual Docie Bass Memorial Bass Tournament this weekend on the Apalachicola River launching from White City on the intercoastal waterway. We started in Depot Creek on the south side of Lake Wimico. I caught a keeper early on, but it wasn't a giant by any means. It did give us a little confidence we were in the right area however. That feeling soon faded as bites were few so we moved to some main lake eel grass. Caught a few short fish then moved again to the intercoastal waterway where current was flowing. We caught fish there all day long and had to go through 8-10 short fish to catch a keeper. At the end of the day we had exactly 7 (a limit for this tournament) keepers in the live well - no culls. Our 7 keepers weighed a whopping 8.1 pounds. 70-80 boats in this tournament. 15 + pounds took top prize. Zoom trick worms (green pumpkin/chart. tail) and Zoom Ultra-vibe worms (candybug) were used for a majority of what we caught. Upon our return to the launch we found out that there had been a wreck - both fishermen sent away in ambulance to hospital. Things could have been much worse. Keep these two guys in your prayers please.




Sunday Sep 20
Miracle Strip Bass Club tournament yesterday. Different partner this day and we went to different places than my partner and I had gone Saturday which consisted of small creeks off the main river. Our first creek did not produce very well, but I did put keeper 1 in the boat going just a hair over 12 inches. Creek 2 my partner passed me up with 2 more keepers. Creek 3 is where we spent more time as it was a little longer. I finished my limit in there and my partner caught one more to get to 3. Ran to the intercoastal waterway with a couple hours left in the fishing day. My partner finished his limit there and I culled a couple times. Black trick worms and Candybug Ultra-vibes took our fish this day. I weighed 5 going 7.38 pounds and my partner 5 going 7.32 pounds. Winner had 7.64 pounds and also Big Bass which was a huge specimen (sarcasm at play) going 2.22 pounds. My partner and I placed 2nd and 3rd - not bad for a couple of military retirees. Water temps back in the creeks 79-80 and in the intercoastal 82-83 degrees. Our club is off to the Alabama River next month - launching from Cooters pond on Prattville AL.

I always hate seeing boat accidents, lots of ways to get killed. Collision, debris, drowning...

Thanks for sharing the photos and a great fishing report ~c~

Sounds like the two fishermen involved in the boating accident may have hit a stump and been ejected into the water. One was knocked unconscious and rescued by the other who sustained broken and bruised ribs in the ordeal. Both are recovering and glad there was not a more serious outcome.

That being said - results from last Saturday's Docie Memorial Bass Tournament have been posted.

Thanks for the reports.

Glad you got into some fish, even more glad you were not one of the ones in that boat.

Eternal Optimism. It's what drives me to fish. Next cast is THE cast that will provide the reason why I am here. Big Bass, Small Bass, No Bass-- Everyday and Every Time out learn something. What worked and what didn't and why. In the end go enough days and then, Today is the day that it will all come together and the Fish Gods will smile.
