Today I had the pleasure of fishing with Fred & Patrick on Lake Mempremagog for smallmouth bass. The morning began wet & humid with heavy rain falling and air temps around 64 degrees. Water temps were over 65 degrees at the first area we fished and the winds were almost non-existent. It didn’t take long before Fred was hooked up and Patrick soon after as well. Most of the day was spent throwing soft plastic jerk-baits to aggressive smallies in the shallows. There were over 50 bass caught up to 3.5 pounds and almost as many lost too. This was to be a quantity type day as both Fred and Patrick left with sore arms from all the hook sets they had to apply throughout the day. All in all a great day regardless of what “Mother Nature” had dealt us!!
