The water was low and rather murky. I took a canoe out into a creek and fought against the wind for a good 30 minutes. During this time period, I had to re-adjust the canoe after every cast and became very frustrated. I decided to just go against the wind/current and let them take me through the areas I wanted to fish. Due to the low tide, much of the fishy-structures were exposed and the perch where no holding well under most docks. I got rid of the skunk with a 14 inch pickerel. I did find some perch in the far upstream stretch in holes right up against the treelines. I theorized that the perch were holding in the channel/not concentrated. Without a fishfinder, I rely on seeing shoreline structure. I finished the day with 8 perch, with 6 of quality size.
