Fished Brushy Creek the morning of July 25th. Caught 8 and missed 3-4 due to poor hook set. 

Most were in the 2-3 lb range. No real pattern, but top Water produced nothing. 

Caught about half on shallow diving cranks and the others on a unweighted senko with a spinner tail. 

On my second trip around, I tried a chatter bait on a point and something hit it as the lure struck the water. It felt like a good size as it was trying to get back into cover. I maneuvered it out to clear water and still did not have it up. I played it for a minute or two ready to let some drag out when it saw the kayak and ran. When I finally got it to the surface, it was a catfish. It had taken both hooks, one in the upper jaw and one on the lower.  It took some time to get the hooks out. 

Water level is about a foot low. 

Water temp was 80. 

Good morning on the water.
