Big Fat Smallmouth
November 20, 2005
After yesterday, Tim was really anxious to get back on the water again for more of these pumpkin like smallmouth! The night temps never really dropped much as we had 40 degrees for the start of the day and rose to almost 50 by the end of the day. The winds were about the same as well as the water temperature, due to the stable, overnight weather. Unfortunately, we never really got to see much sunshine as we were blanketed with clouds all day long! Once again, within the first five minutes Tim was already landing a smallmouth of just over four pounds. This would continue all day long with both Tim & Mike, as it seemed like someone had a fish on about every 15 minutes. By the end of the afternoon, the livewells looked like overstocked aquariums for the photo shoot. Most every fish that came aboard was over 4 pounds with many near five. The largest went 5 pounds 1 ounce on the scale, but he had a few buddies that were like clones too. All in all another great day with plenty of huge football like smallies, Caught & Released once again!
