Uchee Creek near Phenix City, Alabama
The Fishing at the mouth of the creek leading off of the Chattahoochie River has been drawing 3 to 4 Lb Large Mouths all though the currents leading off of the Chat. River have been stronger as of latly. Out of the boat marina and to the left going up river about 3 to 4 Klicks you will hit the bridge leading onto FT. Benning GA. The Pilon supports in the center of the channel are a great catfhishing spot for those with boats. Back near the Uchee Creek Camp ground near the boat marina at the shallow lilly pond I have caught several 2 to 3 Lb large mouths over the summer both early day and just before dark. I have used almost 10 different soft baits in the creek area and have found that Red Shad Worms have worked the best, I usualy get two to three strikes the first 15 mins I throw in. There are alot of weeds and lilly pads back in the creek and pond area crank baits and jigs get hung up real easy. Your best bet is to go texas with a soft bait or wacky worm in open areas. So for this year I have pulled numerious Blue Gills, Cat , and Largemouths of all sizes out of this water and have lost lines and bait to many Gar aswell.
