First trip of the year produced

Hit the upper James River this weekend and caught a few nice smallies. Got so dang excited about the biggest (my PB) that I didn't get a length. I don't know what I was thinking aside from also dealing with a kayak in pretty active current. Caught them on this older Bagley crank - anybody know what model it is?

Going back Friday to see if any of their friends are getting hungry too

Good luck! Are you going with the same strategy or are you planning something different?

Mostly the same, just gonna get on the river earlier and spend more time fishing! Also will have a grub on another rod and throw that in some of the deeper holes.

May I suggest you hold the fish more vertically so you don't stress the fish's jaw so much?

Went back a week later and only caught a catfish :(

Hahah. Such is life, you’ll get em again. Spring time is typically hard fishing for me too. My friend that normally can go to his favorite spot and catch big spring smallmouth, he went out Sunday and could only catch a catfish.
