Smallies

4 posts in this topic

Here it is for all you bass guys out there. We made it out yesterday afternoon for about five hours, not as long as I would have liked, but long enough to shake down a pattern. The smallies are starting the move up into the shallows. All of our fish were prespawn males starting to make the beds. Most of the fish came from fishing senkos over 6' of water. A nice slow presentation was all they needed yesterday. Look for this upcoming weekend to be a banner weekend if we get some nice weather. It seems that a few days of stability has helped the fishing alot.

Take Care Guys and Good Luck Fishing!

Here are some pics from the other day...

Irvdog, yeah we were wacky riggin' 'em most of the time. We're heading out again tomorrow with a friend that has only fished smallies once. Hopefully we'll be able to find some nice smallies for her. I will give you a report afterwards.

      All we ever use is a few bigger spilt shots and float/bobber with crawlers.

          Probably fishing Blue Lake ... or green lake, I have caught my biggest crappies around Opening weekend.  Might give a cast or three for some walleyes but love to fish Bass now, super fun catching those big ones!!   I am mostly a catch n release guy but like a good pan fish meal and looking at getting a smoker!!  Bass ... always catch n release, especially in our metro lakes to keep fishing good.  Was shocked how many people were keeping bass in a local small lake last fall!!  Doesn't take long to wipe out a small body of water.  Some fisherman think they have to keep everything they catch!!  most phones have a good camera on them ... take a pic and release for good fishing future.   Again, its OK to have a meal ... just know what, where, and your species of fish and how spawn and body of water applies to the lake size, ect...    Cret
