smallmouth tournaments

3 posts in this topic

anyone know of any smallmouth tournaments around the state? i like smallmouth a ton more than largemouth(no offense to you largemouth fans) and i was just wondering if there are any smallmouth tournaments in the state that a couple of 16 year old kids could fishin. i know there is a tournament on the rum in milaca. ...oh yea and me and my buddy (8 point) have boats, BUT they are pretty small 14 ft aluminum-5.5horse motor, he has the same with a 7.5 horse....so prefferably a smaller lake or river...sorry bout all the specifications and c.r.a.p

Any bass tournament will let you weigh in smallies, you just need to find some tournaments that are on good smallies lakes. The biggest smallmouth tournament that i know of and it might be one of the biggest in the world is the one on Rainy.

      Thanks. I was only able to give it a whirl once shortly after the post, tried swim baits and tails with no luck. Yep, hear ya about the tackle sacrifice so the generic heads and rubber are the ticket. Depth, current speed, and the angle of the line are considerations when choosing jig weight but I'll use the lightest head possible. Various styles of swim baits and cranks have done well for me on the Sippi & MN in the past but haven't been smacked on the Red yet. Scheels in Moorhead is dumping the fishing stuff and had a little clearance bin where I scored a few cranks for cheap. Only lost one crank to the Red, but had a few close calls & the Rap was like $3. One thing I've learned about casting cranks in rivers is that I loose less if they're floaters and the front treble hook is customized or removed. It helps to use a braid also, when the vibration changes I stop reeling so the lure can back or float up out of the snag. Usually river fish crush a crank bait and I know it's a fish, they ain't got the luxury of suckin & spittin.
