Smallmouth

2 posts in this topic

It's a fine time of the year to be fishing for smallies in southeast Minnesota!

A friend and I went to the Root Sunday for some smallmouth on the fly action and caught around 30 or so bass with the largest running a healthy 17". I did hook one larger bass that snapped my fly off at the tippet, but I think the problem was more of a bad knot than anything else.

Fly fishing for smallmouth can be an absolute blast, and last night was no exception. They were feeding in riffles and in slower tailouts of pools and a few were caught in some slower eddies as well. The fly of choice was a "zoo cougar" with a yellow tail and gray deer hair head.

Enjoy these warm days!

Nice smallie there Randy. My fiance and I were down there canoeing a couple of weeks ago and just had a blast. They were just smoking the lures. None that big, but when you are catching more than paddling what a great day!! laugh.gif Good luck on future outings

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
