I've been scouting new water the past few days. It's been a totally different year than last. Whereas, I was catching lots of nice bass all year, I've been catching a lot of 12 inch smallmouth bass. And, it's okay with me because I've actually been enjoying myself. I have talked with campers, fisherman and floaters. I've also been catching smallmouth bass on new waters with a new glass rod. I'd say it's been fun and successful.
I've been using my Shucker pattern, purple Crazy Dads and Lil Debils. I'm still looking for the big ones.
Hey, I love creek and tributary fishing. I just bought a new book. With a 2013 publication, it's a fairly new title.
It's 99% smallmouth and spotted bass with some Guads and panfish thrown in. I'm gonna do a review of this book soon.
Some folks are big about landing fat pigs but Most days, I'm glad to just have something tugging on the line. My goal for each outing is to land at least one smallmouth bass.
I have been wading in portage shoes because I don't like exposed toes but rocks sure get jammed up under my feet. Do sandals work better? I used to wear canvas boots and shorts or tennis shoes but i. I'm interested in what y'all wear when wet wade fishing.
