Smallmouth season has begun! 3/6/09 float

Zack and I got out for a float with our kayaks somewhere in Indiana: We discovered the Crankbait bite- mine was bigger. Slow, steady retrieve worked best in deep slow water areas near current.

5.5 hour float. Paused at one big pool to use float and fly and nabbed 2 smallies and 2 rock bass. The rest were on Rick Clunn 1.5 Lucky Craft Crankbaits, a fat wide wobbling 2" crank. Chartreuse and copper perch worked for me.

BT 27 smallmouth bass (4 17", 5 15-15.75") 4 Rock Bass
ZP 15 smallmouth bass (17")

  1. Starting to really like working big cranks. Exciting when big fish thump them.
