Jay & his wife, Kim joined me today on 2 different lakes. We fished one body of water in the morning for larger bass & the other one in the afternoon for numbers. Kim hadn’t fished before, so it was great to see her enjoy herself so much just catching all kinds of acrobatic smallies. By the afternoon, she was fishing like she had done it most of her life! The weather started out with heavy fog, but soon cleared to a beautiful sunny day. Air temps reached into the upper 70’s with light & variable winds and the water temps were up to 65 degrees. Kim’s first hook up came as the largest bass of the day. It went over 4 pounds and was caught on a super fluke soft plastic jerk-bait. Most of the 40 to 50 fish fell victim to the same baits with a few others being taken on jigs too. It was nice to see the fish a little more active today, but the water clarity was still pretty high & dirty. The first lake of the day produced 3 fish in the 4-pound range and the second one produced over 30 smallies ranging from 1 pound up to over 3 pounds. All in all, a great day full of smallmouth bass action!!!
