i met lp this morning and we were fishing by 6 am.we went to a cove he has caught fish in before and they were just having none of what we were giving.we went almost 2 hours before i connected with the first fish.it was a nice largie i caught on a spinnerbait.a while later i got another on the spinnerbait and that was it for spinnerbait bites.i caught 2 more fish on a wacky rigged senko.lp was the real star of the day as he got on a roll with a wacky rigged esg senko.watching leigh fish this bait is a real learning experience.even though i didn't match him i did learn a lot about his method of wacky rigging.the wind was not bad until later in the afternoon and then it got ridiculous.we had to anchor at times and boat control sucked.we noticed the smallies either had the classic bar markings on them or no bars what so ever.the no bars smallies also had fire red eyes.are this a seperate sub species or are they male and female smallies.i would love to know the answer to that question.here's some pics for everybody.

Nice post and pics!

Looks like a great day of fishing to me.

Bars and markings have nothing to do with the sex of the

fish. They are not a seperate species, just characteristics

of the specific fish.

do they change color like a largie based on depth and water clarity?

Not to the same extent, but muddy water will make them a bit pale.

However, if they haqve stripes and markings, those are still visible,

just not as well highlighted. Some people say the darker fish are

from deep water, but I don't buy that. Maybe others will comment.
