Micro fishing the upper Econfina

 I’m going to float the upper Econfina next week. I was wondering if anyone has micro fished it. 
 I’ll take some gear and try it. I’ll take pics and try to ID them later.

    I've used Beetle Spins and had a blast on ultralight tackle.  5ft rod with spinner tackle or zebco 33.
    I'm not sure what it looks like after the storm.  It used to be kept pretty open by locals.

    What do you typically catch there ??

    Floated the Creek today. Used Econfina Canoe Livery. 
    Floated from 9-2 pm. I caught 50 and quit.

    Lots of wood in the water. Plenty of chainsaw work done though. No issues.
    It was shady, but nothing like before I would guess. 
    If you live within a couple of hours either way, you should float this creek. I had a Good Time.
    I saw several really nice bass, but I did not have bass gear. 
    I lost the couple bass I had hooked.
    i tangled with some needle fish too, but I did not land them.
