I've really missed smallmouth with the high water all year. The lake is still over 6' high, but I've been one them for a couple weeks now and it seems like they must have missed me too :)

Took a buddy and his son this morning and we whacked them again, plus some bonus fish, one that got a ride home with them.

Got out for a short 3 hr. Trip. Finished with 4 bass, 1 on a popper and 3 on a buzzbait with this one at 3-9

This day started out dry and ended up wet.

I'm good either way ~

took the daughter out for a "boat ride" as she calls it. was a beautiful night and not going to get the chance to fish again for a bit. the bite was slow (non existent). water level was low maybe a draw down or something. hard to juggle appeasing a 4 year old and focusing on fishing.  i was throwing a bone whopper plopper because i recently saw an episode of mlf where a contestant decimated the field using one. got this fish to finally bite when i casted right on its head. there was a reaction right when it hit the water and then a couple cranks later she was on. only fish of the 2 hours or so we were out.

After two consecutive weekends of big frog tournaments, I went out with the intention of punching the mats, figuring the fish normally receptive to topwater offerings were recovering from being sore lipped. The fish were chewing, and I was really surprised when I put a 4.4lb and 4.1lber in the boat on consecutive casts. I pretty much had a solid #retiredguytournament bag at the end of the day, just wish these better fish were bitting on Saturdays lol...

Back to catching "normal-size" kicker fish. These are not quite 5 pounders (yet) but I tried to follow @A-Jay's lead, and caught the first one before it started raining, and the second one when it was pouring.

Caught both of these on a JDM Nories Chibi Ebigaeru (apparently that means "little shrimp frog"). When everyone's fishing the same lily pads in the same little 75 acre reservoir with the same Spro and Booyah frogs, I think it's good to show the fish something a little different. (Caught a few on a Jackall Iobee too, but guess that's not as exotic.)

Largemouth on Little (lower) Mousam Lake in southern Maine, with fellow forum member & wife and their Lund in the background. Great morning! Now if we could just do something about those inflatable pink flamingoes....

Found the white bass schooling good on surface, kept 8 and released several. Got some bonus fish, one small blue cat (on ice) and 3-4 short largemouth. Mosquitos got intense after dark so the catfishing grinded to a halt (not that it was working all that well anyhow)84-CDF902-F4-D0-477-B-954-B-E1442-A80-EE

Had a real productive outing today with the best being this one at probably 5.5 or better. Had a unique sight fishing experience where a duck served as my marker. Apparently a bass took a swipe at her and as she jumped up on the bank I followed with my Fat Ika. Result; one three lbr. with a taste for duck.

Attack of the leeches, a common occurrence in several of the ponds I've fished over the years. Spotted this one today on a smaller bass I caught. It's Myzobdella lugubris, and there are even a few good published papers researching the link between largemouth bass and this parasitic leech.

I think she wanted to eat that 5” swim bait! spacer.pngspacer.png

 

19” long, just under 4lbs! Caught just a little after sunrise. 

 

Caught about a dozen today mostly smaller. One was maybe 2lbs. Bite was tough but I could get some of them to eat IF I could get a lure in front of them. They wanted to follow around all the enormous clouds of bait minnows that were out drifting around. So getting their attention meant doing a lot of chucking and winding, and hoping to get a bait within the 3 feet of visibility where they could see it!
