Got to step up my game.

Recommended Posts

Gotta step my game up starting on Saturday. Maybe jig & pig will get it done. I don't know. I've been getting out. I'm catching fish. Tubes, grubs and worms have been working. Crankbaits and countdowns have been working. Can't say I've caught a respectable Smallie yet. I know I will. Got to break the ice on that first nice one. Jig & pig or split shotting some lizards is on my agenda.

What kind of water are you fishing? You didn't ask any specific question, but if you're just trying to pump yourself up "You Got This!" 

 

I've been fishing a little river and been doing well with a Baby Rage Craw on a 1/8 shakeyhead, Teeny Wee Craws, and a 4" lizard on a split shot rig. Will be hitting the lake for the first time this year and am expecting them to be between main lake points and secondary points. Good luck.

Not really in need of a pump up. I need to bare down and fish a bit harder. Have been taking a laxed approach and adopted the attitude at least I'm not getting skunked. Water conditions have been pretty poor for weeks up here. They (river) is starting to get a decent stain color and settling out. If we start to get just moderate rains things will start to look up. Fish a little slower with the jig and my results may be better. Over the years I've gotten some nice smallies on 4" Zoom lizards. But for some reason I don't throw them as often anymore. I'd say the Deleware River is pretty big as far as size. I'm open to opinions. And any comments are greatly appreciated.

Caught a citation sized smallmouth bass a couple months ago on a crankbait while fishing a river, so I would think this would be a good lure to use for smallmouth bass fishing.

Don't rule out a topwater bait. I caught 9 smallies the other day casting a popper really close to the bank. I mean at times it was inches away from the bank.

power fish, shallow cranks, spinnerbaits/inlines, topwater. Cover water and you will find some biggins. I very rarely dink around with small finesse soft baits in the river. 

Chatter lures also

Guys haven't been on the sight much as of late. Giving those smallies heck. Not gotten that very respectable Smallie yet (18"+). Lost a nice one on Saturday on a whopper plopper but I think he was way short of that. Have gotten a few on the 90 series but I'm not all that impressed yet. Rather throw a skitter pop, pop r, or spook. Crankbaits, worms and a Ned rig version has been working. Have been fishing a lot of different structure, depths and places in the river system. A lot of times I hang myself up by fishing the same spots. Actually going back to some old spots I don't hit as hard anymore. I'll get some pics off my phone and post them.
