yes, the smallmouth fishing has been great. I got 36 by myself on Tuesday and about 30 yesterday with a buddy. It was a little more difficult yesterday becasue of the cloud cover and breeze. The average size on Tuesday was slightlty larger than yesterday. Most of those fish were over 4lbs while most of the fish yesterday were about 3-31/2 lbs with only a few over 4lbs. Biggest was 4.7lbs. I got one on Tuesday that was 5.4lbs and one at 6.2lbs.

I will be up this weekend in Wahon Bay. Any sugestions on where to start and what to toss. I am pretty much a walleye guy but they have been slow during the day so I thought I might try for some smallies this weekend

We also had luck on Sunday with a lot of smallies and some bonus walleyes. Also hooked and landed a 44" musky. The bass seemed to be on the edges of the main lake rock-piles which surprised me as I thought we would see them shallow, in the bays, on their beds. Unlike the earlier report, our best bite seemed to be when we had a little wind and chop on the water. I also echo the earlier report in that the average size was approx. 3lbs. with about a half dozen of our catch being over 4lbs. We caught nothing over 5lbs.

The mimic minnow confused.gif I used that bait in Canada last summer and just hammered the walleyes and smallies in the shallows......and people laughed at me! I know it works that's for sure!

They have not spawned yet.Bad timing for a tournament this weekend.

I've seen other reports that the fish haven't spawned yet as well, but judging by the fish we caught many also looked like mid-summer fish....healthy, but not full of eggs. Is there a bass tournament this weekend? Why would you say it's bad timing for a tournament this weekend?

It not the tourny's fault just happens to be bad timing with mother nature this year, cold water temps have prevented alot of them from spawing. alot of the fish your seeing are probably males.

The fish I was on were in full spawn a week ago Tuesday with some fish still there on Sunday but a lot of fish were new.

M.M. You are right it is not the tourneys fault but this is the second year in a row the fish are spawning later than normal.My concern is that these fish are going to be pulled off beds to be returned where(MACS).Just doesn't seem like a good idea to me.(JUST MY OPINION)

Remember, the fish unless larger than 21" must be immediately released. My guess it that there will be less than a handful of 21" fish weighed at Mac's.
