Chubby Smallmouth

Recommended Posts

Thought I would share a couple of nice smallmouth from the weekend. Both fish caught on jerk baits. Enjoy!

Those are some big fish! Side note to have a correct measurement don't you have to have the mouth closed?

Gorgeous fish! One reason why I love catching those big smallies, the color is unreal.

That lake produces some awesome color.  If I wak up early enough, I'm headed up there again in the AM.

Are you on one of the northern chains or the great lakes? I've heard you can stick footballs up there that push 8-9 pounds.

I'm in NW WI, a bit north of Eau Claire.

 

That particular lake is not a chain.

 

As far as the great lakes go, Sturgeon Bay produces some big fish, as do some of the bays on Lake Superior.  One that I know of has a 23" minimum.

WOW!  Ok, I'm moving up north!  We have smallmouth here in VA, but these pictured here just dwarf them.  Great catches!

This is my personal best smallie that came out of Lake Ontario in Canada. This football was 21 inches long and weighed six pounds eight ounces, doubt I will ever catch one that big again.

Hey, I live in Eau Eau claire myself. Mind me asking what lake you caught all the smallies out of? I'm hoping to expand my range a bit and fish new spots more next season.

Happy to share - shoot me a private message and I'll let you know off line.  I don't want the lake to show up on a search engine and get clobbered by everyone and their brother.

I've never seen a smallie with a defined gut before. That is awesome! Great fish!

My personal fattest smallie had a 8-9 inch crappie tail in it's throat and still tried to eat my crankbait.
