I am heading down to the river tonight and I have never fished it this time of year so I am not sure where to start. I imagin that the same tricks I was using early in the season by presscott have changed and I will need to chase them down. We are heading out after work and hope to find some smallies and an eye or two if they will bite. I am thinging of tossing some buzz baits and shadraps. Firetiger worked earlier should it still? Also not sure about switching to lindy's and spinners after plain gumball jig worded so well earlier.

Had good success with dive-to's in baby bass color.

For smallies it's hard to beat a tube jig, darker colors seem to work the best...have a rod rigged up with a topwater of some sort as well, like a chug bug or pop-r...towards evening get check out some sand flats for smallies and whities bustin minnows on the surface.

For eyes crawler or leech on lindy or a crawler spinner should do the trick. Jig bite should pick up a bit later..

      OUCH!!! 6 players down to injury in one game.  We were thin at O-line depth before, now we have "1st" line players having to play nearly an entire preseason game, because we dont have enough bodies!  This is going to be major issue going forward.   Overall, not a good showing offensively. Jacksonville is a very good defensive team, but we definitely need to be better.   Defense, look pretty good!  We need to complete turnover chances, at a better rate.     3rd RB race is going to be fun to watch.   Special teams, are kinda leaving me wondering.  Punt coverage is quite shaky.  Carlson is looking more like our guy, after Forbath missed a 41 yd fg.

      That's ok.  Was a good day on the water.  Took my wife out this afternoon and had a nice day fishing.

      Bass, especially Smallmouth Bass.   Why are they my favorite? A symptom of growing up along the Mississippi I would imagine.  The walk along the shores of The Miss. have given me pretty much every species that swims here.  Nothing get me more excited than the acrobatics or the will of a Smallmouth.   In open water I just seem more drawn to grab the bass bag and chase bass more than other species.  Come fall, it will be tunnel vision, bronzebacks.

      Bass.   It’s what I find myself fishing for the most. I can fish for em anywhere and there are SO many different ways to target them.  Anything from finessing to big, bold bites and big hooksets.  Even if you’re not catching much you can at least entertain yourself with precise casting practice for certain presentations.
