If there are lots of crayfish in the river the smallies are probably fat, you would think that they would hit them but I fished one spot with crayfish for about an hour...nothing...switched to my rapala... caught 40 smallies and 6 trout..smallies were ranging from 1lbs to 2lbs 14oz. Crayfish for me anyways are more successfull in lakes.

- X Rap in clown color
- grub with a 1/4 oz jig head. I like black, but have caught them on any color you can think of.
- tube, i like a chartreuse tail with a brown body
- finesse jig
- Yum Crawbug. This is my favorite smallie bait. Rig it naked or as a jig trailer, either way, it flat out catches fish.
