First Smallies!!!

Recommended Posts

Went up to PA this weekend to fish Saturday with my brother in law.  We went out on the Juniata River for about 5-6hrs.  I have never caught a smallie before, but Saturday I probably caught around 15.  They are like pure muscle - I caught a super small one maybe 6" and weighed a few ounces but while I held her to get unhooked she fought like a 1lb+ LMB for sure!  Had a great time and hope to catch some more brown fish in the future.

First ever Smallie!!

Nicest one of the day.  She hit like a freight train - probably the hardest hit I've ever had.  She literally had the entire crankbait in her mouth.  The picture doesn't do her justice but she was +/-18" and 2.5-3lb.

Nice man!  Always nice to mix it up and go for some smallies.

Excellent!!! The Juniata has some good fish but the monsters are further down near the confluence where the Juniata dumps into the Susquehanna. I hope you get a chance to hit the Susky and get into a 4 or 5lb smallmouth, they can really pull and the hits are violent beyond belief. It is hard to believe that they can hit so hard and then pick up a bait so soft you barely feel it but they can change moods in a heartbeat. I hope some of what I told you helped, good job on the smallmouth!!!

Hopefully next time I'll be able to fish the Susky.  Would love to get into some larger smallies - I am already looking to go back up.  Thanks for the advice, I'll keep you posted on any future trips!

Smallies are always fun! Especially when there good sized ones like those!
