Lake: Pride’s Creek (Pike County)
Fishing report: The panfish bite out at Pride’s creek is a little slow still, but some are having success for Bluegill, Redear, and Crappie. The Bluegill and Redear seem to be in a little deeper water off the banks and can be targeted with small tube jigs or baited hooks. Crappie are being caught by trolling crankbaits in some deeper water offshore. Pride’s Creek continues to be a phenomenal panfish lake with Bluegill commonly over 8 inches, Redear commonly over 9 inches, and Crappie commonly over 9 inches. As the water temps continue to cool down, the bite should start heating back up. Also, if you like catching numbers of Largemouth Pride’s Creek is a great place to visit. While panfishing it is common to catch a high number of Largemouth ranging from 10 to 14 inches which are always fun to catch using panfishing gear.
