Crazy Nice Bronze Backs Dwight.

 

Terry was right -  that looks like an advertisement for your new fishing reality show ~

 

"Smallmouth Dynasty"  (Minus the beard of course.)

Amazing...thanks for sharing.

I can only relate back to when I fished the Columbia River in Oregon/Washington. Had many fifty plus fish days but mostly fish up to five pounds. Spring was amazing.

Totally awesome!!!! Those fish represent the reason why we fish for smallmouth bass! I've never caught smallies that big.

 

I've had several of good days however, with maybe 40 bass each of us, between 2 1/2 - 4 1/2 lbs. on the Quabbin. And on two separate days we landed (and released) a "quad". That's two bass on float rigged Senkos and two on the drop shot - all at the same time - while anchored on a deep shelf. (We are allowed two rods per person here.) Talk about a frenzied fire drill! :)

 

Smallies are GREAT!

I did - and I'm hoping that I can be there when the next "best day" happens.

 

When it comes to smallmouth fishing big water, the man is a pioneer.

I need to get up there! Usually when people hit Erie they are going for Wallies. I am thinking maybe branching out is in order!

Not the same quality as those Lake Erie bass, But last summer I went on a smallie quest to the U.P. of Michigan and in 2 days landed 17 smallies on a small lake between 3 and 4 1/2 lbs. dragging a crawfish tube. Not another boat on the water, eagles and ospreys everywhere. This is a C&R lake but no one fishes it. Also caught 20 LM between 1.5 and 2.5 lbs. on another lake on the same trip. U.P.= Gods country

I love the color/marking variations between the two pigs you're holding side by side. Smallies rock! Beautiful fish -
