First Smallmouth


Unk

Recommended Posts

Wanted to send a heartfelt thank you to the many folks here who have helped me achieve a goal . I understand that this is literally and figurartively no big deal to the folks who post here but , for this old man , it means a great deal . Thank you . Hit a 07 gold original floating Rapala in 4-6 feet of 59 degree water just inside a rocky point . Didn't weigh or measure as did not want to keep it out of the water any longer than needed .

That's a fact, and I can assure you that your smallmouth adventure began much more impressively than mine did, congratulations!

That first brown bass is special. I still remember mine, and yours could have ate my first smallmouth.

Thanks . You wouldn't think such a young fish could build such a memory for such an old man :)

Congrats!  Did you notice the difference?  They are fighters.  Am heading up to Ontario in June to catch smallies.

Thanks . Yes I did . I've always been told I would not land my first smallmouth . She put up quiet an argument and I got lucky :)

Congratulations on catching your first smallmouth bass. They are one of my favorite fish to catch when I fish Northern waters.

Thank you . I also have strong memories of fishing down your way . My PB came from the St. Johns .
