Only Big Bass
June 6, 2006
I was back out again with Ron, Sam & Doc on a trophy lake for smallmouth bass this morning. What a beautiful day with sunshine throughout, and a light wind for most of the day. The air temps went into the upper 80’s and water temps were between 61 & 66 degrees depending on the area. It didn’t take long to begin hooking up, as we were about to find out. An average fish was above 4 pounds from the start of the day right up till the end of the day. Tubes, & small, light jigs accounted for the almost 40 smallies caught today with the largest going near 6 pounds. There were a few fish over the 5-pound mark, but most were 4 to 4.5 pounds. Most of these large smallmouth were caught & released in 4 to 12 feet of water. All in all, a great day for really big fish today!!!
