Headed out to Brown's Creek Lake in Natchez Trace State Park today to wet a line. Actually, I fished there all weekend. Had been catching good numbers of fish all weekend on 1/4 oz. T-rigged Rage Tail Craws. I ran out of them today, and since the morning bite had died off somewhat, I switched to a Rage Tail 10 inch Anaconda worm and moved deeper to fish some submerged tree tops out off of one of the main lake points. Fourth cast and the line just started drifting off not long after it hit the water. Never felt the fish, but I swung anyhow and the fight was on. Got her in the boat. Just shy of 23 inches long. Probably 6-7 lbs. I had a ball fishing this lake all weekend. It has a 16-21 inch slot, and you will catch a lot of fish that are in that slot range. Sucks if you're fishing for keepers to take home, but if not, it's a lot of fun to catch them. Here's a few pics....

IMO the place is laced with BIG fish! Since you are splashing pictures all over the forum I might as well add to that. LOL
It has a huge population of threadfin shad, which obviously is great bass forage. I did not fish it much last year, and I'm not that big of a bass fisherman, but it also has a healthy number of black crappie, many of which are sub 10". I caught droves of fish from about 8 to 9 and 3/4, and huge bass were programed to nail the 8"ers when I threw them back. A site to see. My son and I were on the pier and one of the returned fish was apparently stunned and quivering on the surface. We were standing right over it and the biggest bass that we had ever seen, certainly 10plus just kinda eased under it and sucked it in like a bream taking a mayfly, and both were gone. Also a lesser bass, maybe 4 or 5 lbs, nailed a throwback and it was too much for it to handle, and he jumped twice trying to rid himself of the oversized meal. And we have heard bass hitting crappie that we returned under the pier, slashing on the surface and even hitting the supports of the pier. Big fish are there!

Man, that's unreal. Friday was my first time to ever see the lake and we nailed several decent fish around 4 lbs. So, I went back and fished there all weekend. I talked to an older guy on the water in a Ranger boat that fishes the lake pretty regular and he said he has caught two bass over 10 lbs out of that lake and pretty much said what you just posted, to a "T". I knew it had to have big fish in it with a slot limit like it has. The threadfins were going nuts all weekend on top of the water.

Congrats!
Advice - don't carry a big boat over there - that ramp is ridiculous!! It's so steep I tore the cover on my spare tire on my trailer coming out. They completely screwed up when they built it!

Dude...You ain't kidding! It was something else. As soon as your trailer hits the water, it just drops off. If you weren't careful launching, you'd swamp the back of the boat and take on lots of water.
