Platte Lake Access Dock & GOMH
Unfortunately I forgot to bring the camera, would have had some pics.
I arrived at the GOMH just after 7PM and pretty much nothing was going on. At about 8:15 I decided to take the advice from a drunk from the other night who said crappies bite off the Platte Lake Public Access Dock right before dark. Now I didn't know whether to believe him, but I thought it was worth a shot. I get there and on the very first cast my bobber goes down, but I miss it. I'm like hmmm, maybe the drunk was on to something. Next cast bobber goes down and I miss again. Next cast I hooked into a chunky 18" bass. That was the last bite I got staying to 9:45.
Then I went back to the GOMH and Scott was there with his daughter and the wind was down to nothing. They had gotten 5 silver bullheads. Right away I smacked a slab and thought this might be good. Didn't get a hit again until about midnight and I missed it. It was getting to be about 12:15AM and I was just about to give up when I caught another silver bullhead. I caught 2 more in pretty short order; all of them were right up on the rocks. At 12:30 I caught an actual honest to goodness bullhead and decided to call it a night.
