Went out to Pine Flat on Sunday for a few hours. A stingy double skunk

haha went past trimmer boat launch. Quite a few people at near the bridge so we hiked a bit. It was peaceful until people started to come next to us. Didn't catch anything but saw a bunch of bass swimming closeby.

Decided to go Deer Creek Point and hiked through the high grass to the point. Got a nice bite but missed it while I was setting my 2nd pole. It hit on salmon eggs.

Tried everything out there, all kind of color powerbait (orange, rainbow, green, yellow, and red) and pw (green, yellow, orange power worm). Used all kind of lure like kastmaster, PM lure, little cleo, rooster tail, etc... still nothing.

Oh well. At least the day before we went to hensley lake and limit out. I still haven't caught that many at pine flat...i might have to skip Pine Flat and go to Hensley as I haven't got skunk there all year (roughly 10 visit).

This is all from bank fishing.

That was a great post! Sorry for the 'not so great' results. Can I ask where Deer Creek Point is?

Better catching next time,

RJ......Its the point directly north of the dam. If you had a map...find the dam....go over hughes mountain and go north over the lake...thats deer pt. Its the point west of Island park. Hope that helps.

RJ:

here is the lake map.

Pine Flat Lake Map (http://www.anglernet.com/web/maps/pine1.htm)

I went to the Deer Creek Point Grp. Camp at Island Park Recreation Area which is number 6 on that map.

I was trying to fish power line but wasn't sure where that is. Is it the area from Deer Creek Rec Area to Lakeview Rec Area?

on a side note, didn't want to end the weekend in a skunk so went to Bass Lake yesterday and we caught 6 but missed at least 8 or so near shore. :( It was a bit slow but plenty of action throughout the day :)

Thanks for the map, but I've been fishing this lake for about 50 years and just never heard of Deer Creek Point as it refers to the lake. That is the group campground above the lake.
The power line area is just that, the area of the lake where the power lines cross overhead. There are actually 2 such areas, one East of Lombardo's that crosses the lake to the East point of Lawless Cove aka 'Skiers' Cove, and a second up in the head waters East of Big Creek that crosses overhead.
If you fish from the banks all of the time, look for a good used handheld VHF radio and talk with us guys in boats. Or better yet, check the 'Hitchhikers' board frequently for open seats.
