Smallie Opener

5 posts in this topic

Well the real opener has come and gone now. I hope the fishing was too good since I don't see any reports. Did anyone make it out this weekend? I was unable to, but I do plan on getting out Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I'll post a few reports when I get back.

I flailed aimlessly in a high and muddy river for a few minutes this past Saturday, just so I could say I went out for the bass opener. I'm anxiously waiting for some warmer days, and warmer, clearer water for some good smallie fishing.

I have to agree with WxGuy. I made a couple of random casts in a new stretch of water, but it was really too muddy and fast to really expect any action. I'll be looking to get out more once the local high school season is finished. Good Luck to All.

fishing was good, in all we caught and released well over 30 smallies in 1/2 a day of fishing with the boys. Kameron kept this one and a few others for eatin. This one was the largest at a bit over 4 pounds.

Fishing wasn't fantastic today. I only caught about 15, but it sure felt nice to be out there. I counted 10 beds and there was still a male guarding one of them. The majority of fish were still shallow. That surprised me, I thought they would be deeper. Caught a 12, 2 14's, and a 16 incher.

This is the 16 incher. Not the best photo, but I was by myslef and wanted to get it back in the water quickly.

      I'd ride shotgun then.   But if we get busted at the Border, I'm running!           North!

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
