Smallmouth bass

Recommended Posts

If you're talking lakes, smallies generally are in cooler, deeper water, often rocky-bottomed, than largemouth and are not as cover-oriented. They'll take a full assortment of baits. Burning a chartreuse spinnerbait can be good. So are jerkbaits, crankbaits, jigs with grubs and don't forget topwaters.

This is my formula:

Current, structure, light line and shiners.

If you want to catch bigger fish, move away from the bank and focus on deeper structure.

I've had great luck with shad raps and husky jerks.  Floating rapalas twitched across the surface can be a blast too.  Last year I started using any kind of french fry type baits (senkos, YUM dingers, etc.) on some deeper structure and had a lot of luck.
