Recently taken to hunting down consistent action over just a few fish with a big one in there from time to time. The creeks I have been fishing have bass up to 18.5" ( maybe more), but you have to catch a lot of fish before you get some good ones. It will now get harder to catch these bigger fish as waters drop for summer flow.
Right now I'm going for 30-60 fish days at the expense of targetting flows where I might be in the teens with the opportunity for more larger smallies.
Another driving factor is this is new water for me.
