Early Smallmouth Reports

2 posts in this topic

Coming up this sunday-friday and looking for smallies. Any early suggestions? I am guessing based on water temps in and around black bay that they probably have spawned in there already. Stayin not to far from Campfire Island and would like to know of any early successes out there.

I doubt if any bass have spawned. I have yet to see a bed and have been fishing bays with temps as high as 66 during the day. I have seen bass cruising in shallow water.

      I have caught them on Vermilion when the mayflies are hatching in the evening by using a fly rod with small poppers or may fly type dry flies. Just cast to the surfacing fish. A spinning rod with an Adjusta Float with poppers or flies may work even better. Cliff

      I have also wondered why there are no Sauger in Vermilion. I have never caught one there or heard of one being caught by anyone else. Cliff

      Thanks for the report MNfan.  Too bad fishing wasn't better for you. Good weather at least. Nice to get out this time of year.
