I’ve been fishing this little muddy river as long as I’ve been taking steps. It’s only a mile from home so that’s the main reason it’s my go to but also the seclusion and great fishing during different times of the year help place it at number one. I know these waters better than any where…on earth really lol. Not always gonna catch a bunch but when the season is right and the right technique is used it sure can produce a stronger full in no time!
