latest on the smallies

4 posts in this topic

Hows everyone else doing on the smallies? I've spent all day yesterday and only boated one and lost 3. I seen a bunch but couldn't get them to bite. Is it me or are they just not that aggresive lately.

I just got back from a smallie fishing trip up there and got skunked. Spent 2 days trying to catch one. Fished rocks on south side from 1-12 ft. Fished tubes, cranks, topwater,spinnerbaits... Finally switched to walleyes on the flats and salvaged my trip. I did catch some nice eyes but wish i would have went to Green lake. I hear all this hype about the bass fishing out there, but every time I fish it, I eat humble pie.....

The topwater bite has been out of this world for me. Use a rattle trap to find em. Once there located get em on top. Thats the only thing they would hit last week. They wouldn't touch a tube, but attacked a topwater plug aggresively. It hasn't been uncommon to get 30 to 70 fish off a spot once you find em.

Anything in particular you look for to find the them? I just have been hitting diffferent rock reefs.

      I'll be out this wknd and got 3 spots to try out so still debating which one will be the ticket. The past couple weeks I've been getting some while crappie fishing.  Going to be shore fishing so FYI the water level is pretty high right now with all the rain from few weeks ago. A wader would be handy if you have one.  Good luck n be safe out there.

      Found a half dozen good size crappies on Clear Lake in Waseca Sunday.  Just off the bottom in 8 feet of water, minnows under bobbers.  Water temp was 58 on the east side of the lake, which was a full degree above the rest of the lake.

      yepper, almost 30 between the 2 of us in the slack water next to fast water. kinda hard to fish in that fast water when it's moving so fast...

      We were using both, but the number of fish caught was definitely based on..... location, location, location - slack water during high flows is where it's at buddy.
