Have the smallmouth bass finished spawning yet?

Will you be heading out for smallmouth bass fishing this weekend?

Good Luck

Dave

My guess is most of the smallies are on their beds or on their way to their beds. There may be a few fish on the rock piles as well.

We were trollling some crank baits last weekend and went around the inside of Doe Island and then circled the shallow water by Appledorns. Stopped in 5' of water to change rapalas and casted out a #7 silver minnow, and as soon as it hit the water, the fight was on. pulled in a 16-17" smalley.

Looked to be shallow rocks and sand in that area.

      A little damp (icy) and chilly this morning.   Had absolutely no gobbling ON the roost this morning.  Strange.   About 7am I had 3 birds gobbling close, behind the blind.  They went back and forth sometime before slinking off the SE.  Now all is quite and cold.   Giving them till 10 then off to work.

      Fishing the Goose Lake chain mostly. May try the night bite, weather permitting.

      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...
