Today I had the pleasure of fishing with David on Lake Memphremagog for smallmouth. He brought his fly rod along in anticipation of getting into a few smallies on poppers & hooked up almost immediately. Several smaller bass were caught on the fly rod before we went to spinning tackle and soft jerk-baits. The weather was once again overcast with occasional misty rain falling, but there was virtually no wind at all. Air temps went to almost 60 degrees and the water temps were around 63. Plenty of decent sized smallies were caught throughout the day but the best was left for last. The last hour of top-water fishing with zaras was just unbelievable. For a while, it was every cast with an explosion & hook up. It was just a perfect end to a perfect day. All in all, over 75 bass were caught & released today!!
