Put in at Monterry Park and worried about it in the morning. Water was stained, and the front rolled through. After the front we found clear water and started throwing worms and lizards in 3-4 ft of water. Most were dinks. The bigger ones were caught at the mouths of teh creeks in 5-9 ft of water. Darien had one at least 5 pounds that came off at the boat. They should be bedding great in a few weeks. This was the first worm trip for me and I put the biggest fish in the boat and caught my share. Love worm fishing! Another good day on Big Sam.
