4# detroit river smallmouth

8 posts in this topic

Went a little over 4# on my econo scale lip gripper i brought last year.It was caught on a 4" yum dinger T-rigged on 1/8 oz bullet weight. It was in 15-20 Feet of water.

Went out on a boat last Friday with buddies of mine,started out walleye fishing for dinner.Both my buddies limited out with their 5 walleyes,to mine a big flat ZERO.I'll be the first to admit,I can't catch walleyes even when i tried.Had the same rigs,baits and style.Goes to prove even with same rigs you need to know how to catch them and i apparently don't.

My buddy had the picture on his cell phone,but accidentally deleted it before he could send me it.  :'(  He's still apologizing for deleting it since this morning... ;D He feels bad about it. It wasn't his fault,i should have brought a camera.

This was my first boat trip since i was a little kid.I used to be terrified of boats...needless to say,now i want a boat.My wife ain't happy about hearing i want one now. ;D

All in all i had a great time and thought i share with you guys.I really wish i had the picture to share as well.Maybe next time my dumb self will remember to bring my own camera.  :-[

Way to go Matt!!!

A four pounder can fight like crazy, but when it's in that strong current, the fight gets even better.  :)

Fight was awesome,he was using that current to his advantage though. Only jumped once by the boat.I had my rod tip down....I didn't want to lose him.

Yes those big smallies can be a heartbreaker when see a big pig doing acrobat tricks.  Awesome sight but it seems they can send your bait right out of their mouths too.
