19 Inch Smallie

Recommended Posts

How much would a 19 inch smallie that looked full of eggs weigh from the St Croix??

Probably about 5 pounds, give or take a couple ounces. The biggest smallie I've ever caught was 18 inches and was just over 4 pounds.

We caught a 19 1/2 a few years ago on opener. It went 4lbs 6 oz on our scale.

Nice fish!

I caught a 22 1/2" Smallmouth on the St. Croix near Hudson 3 years ago.

Man it was huge - I quickly gota tape measure, thought about mounting her, then decided to put her back in the water to spawn another year or two or more (who knows?). She looked a little beat up, but at that size & age, no wonder.

I thought about 6 - 6.5 Lbs. confused.gif

Is that about right or would she weigh more...??

19"this time of year could go 5.. but if I had to guess, jus a hair under. During the summer a 19" smallie woud probably go around 4 lbs..maybe 4.25.

a 22.5 is hard to say, depends on what time of the year you caught it. A trophy no matter what!

Geez, I'm giddy like a school girl when I catch a 22.5" walleye, I can't imagine what I'd do if I caught a smallie of the same length.

Dietz,

It was mid-summer, that's another reason why I did not take the time to weigh the 22.5" Smallie. I wanted to get it in ASAP.

Well done FishForLife!!!

I respect you all that much more!!! A replica would look really nice on your wall I would bet! Midsummer, if I had to guess, and thats all it would be.. a guess...A 22.5" river smallie would be pushing 6lbs... A trophy for sure!... a 22.5" lake smallie would probably weigh more, but not be as strong...

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
