Quick Hotspot part II

Hit another quick local hotspot, took 45 minutes to walk to. I got two fish in about an hour on RC 2.25" orange/black crank. The above was 19". Strange, I don't know if they were actually back on the cranks. The first fish, a 13"er, hit when I left the bait sit on splashdown, just as I started to slowly crank it down.

The big boy hit when I had a tremendous bow in my line from wind. Never felt it hit the bait. Did it hit the crank on the rise?

20th Smallie 18" or more so far this year. 37 17" or more.


  1. Sounds like it is a good year for big smallies in the rivers down there.

  2. We've had a lot of stability in weather patterns, BP.

    Finding more wintering holes to FnF has helped me know where to start looking in early Spring. Then, extrapolate the locations to similair streams...

    What's interesting is the first good warmup brought numbers, now it's slowed. Almost like the smaller bass are waiting for life to bloom before they get active.

    Can't wait to see what the rest of the year holds.

  3. 37 17"+ already! amazing!

    Fish sure seem to be running large this spring.

  4. Jeff. Keep up the good work on your end.

    We could sure use a little rain to cloud things up. Getting low and clear.
