It's been awhile since I've been able to get out since being busy with school but I made a point to go this morning. It was Friday the 13th but the fish didn't know. My usual drop in point has been Randleman Bridge but today I put in at Crosspointe early before the sun came up to try and get that topwater bite. I fished in the second cove as I made a left from the dam, I think it's called no name creek? Picked up only 1 dink off topwater on a Sammy 100. I tried the good ole Pop-R but no takers. My friend caught an 8 lber using a carolina rigged 10" worm so I tried that but no takers. I then switched to a technique I read on another post on NC angler. C-rig with a green pumpkin Zoom ultravibe speed craw - this was the ticket! I picked up about 10 bass on this bait working the points in 10 - 14 feet of water with long casts and dragging the bait or lifting the rod tip/reel slack technique. I tried to focus on banks that had rock or sandy bottoms without that witches hair crap. Largest went about 6 lbs but the rest were in the 3 - 4 lb range. I even caught a catfish using the speed craw. I did lose a few because setting the hook in a kayak using a c-rig is a little awkward but I figured it out later in the morning. I was off the water before the rain around 1230. Enjoy the pics.

I would like to give Jordan a try for bass so if anyone could provide which landing to use to launch plus what general area - just so I don't have to paddle long and I would like to go early in the morning and off the water before it gets too hot. A buddie of mine was telling me there are stumps out there I could try but he didn't elaborate where or which landing to launch from. Thanks!

John

Fish_Fiend, are they as good to fish them t-rigged? I used the c-rig for more open water but could I use it t-rigged for weedlines or with a heavier weight to punch through matted grass and such?

Only place I have launched in Jordan is near the Ebeneezer boat ramp but it's a small lake that is cut off from Jordan. If you take Hwy 64 and turn right heading on Beaver Creek Rd to the Ebeneezer ramp, you go past it and go over the bridge. After you go past the bridge you will see a lake up ahead on your right. There is a right turn which is Pea Ridge Rd but stay straight on Beaver Creek. Just past Pea Ridge Rd, there is a turn off on the right to an old boat launch at the lake. It is very easy to launch there and out in the middle of the lake there are a bunch of stumps.

I haven't fished there yet, just took the yak there on her maiden voyage. Have seen lots of people fishing over there. It's not crowded with boats but some will launch john boats with small outboards there.

I found it. Basically the ramp is just below the T is right? I see that the smaller body of water is separated from the main lake, is this where most people fish for bass?

I think I may put in at Farrington Ramp and fish the main lake. That smaller lake looks good and I found this post http://www.ncangler.com/forums/threads/48710-Electric-only-side-of-Jordan?highlight=jordan+lake that speaks about his body of water as being really good for kayaks. My concern is they also talk about break ins. Anyone know what is like now and if my car would be safe? It's new, and I don't keep anything of value except the straps and foam blocks since I carry the yak on top. I would like to give a try but not at the risk of my car getting broke into. Thanks.

That's it! I have only put in there once and there were 3 other trucks there from people with yaks or small boats. I didn't think there was an security issue but there are some people that fish from the banks there so you just never know.

I do see a lot of yaks out on Jordan and its a busy lake on the weekends but if you go during the week it wouldn't be bad at all. Harrington would be an easy place to launch from.
