I got a call last night from a friend who is going with some guys the first week of June.  I don’t know what lake but they will be fishing for smallmouth.  He wants some tube heads and Ned heads.  Neither he no I have fished there before.  So I am trying to get an idea of what to make him.  My original thoughts are 1/8 and 1/4 oz tube heads and 1/16, 3/32, and 1/8 oz Ned heads.  Mn guys am I in the ball park or way off course?

Absolutely in the ball park. For smallmouth I use primarily 1/8 oz Tube jigs, sometimes 3/16. Neds almost exclusively 3/32 oz, but if over 15 feet and/or current then 1/8 oz.

Thanks.  I have poured him 2 dozen of each size that I listed.  Will that be enough for a week of solid fishing?

the pike might have a say in this.

I don’t understand what you mean.

I think he means that your friend is going to lose some from pike bite offs.

Two dozen of each should be good, unless he enjoys fishing heavy jigheads in shallow rocks and loses all of them on snags. Pike will bite off a few, but hopefully by June the little slimer pike and the smallmouth will inhabit different places.
