Pb Smallie

Recommended Posts

Well, I officially have the smallmouth bug. I caught my first smallmouth ever this year, starting at table rock lake. I started fishing Melvern lake which is a hot smallie lake (as many kansas city posters will testify) around these parts. Several posters here have recently caught 4-5 lb class fish. Mine did not pass that mark today, but considering I just started catching smallmouth this year, I'll take it.

This fish weighed in at 3.5 lbs, and was one of the fattest fish I have ever seen. The fish was only 17 inches long. I'd like to meet up with this fish in a couple of years, because it has the makings of a monster. She came off a 90's rapala shad colored crank that ran to about 7 feet. Despite tough turn over conditions (lake was much dingier than normal, and fishing was slow.), she still wanted that crank.

Here she is.

Count me in the smallmouth club. These fish are a blast.

Good for you. The next step is to start fishing rivers for smallmouth. Once you go down that road, you'll never look back.
