Smallmouth help please!!!!

Recommended Posts

Ok I got me a nice small mouth yesterday morning on a blade bate

But they stop hitting should I move to another spot or change bates?

Or fish that spot a few more hours then move if they are not hitting no more?

Here is one more thing I need to ask.

I fish yesterday morning at 6:00 am and thats when I got that small mouth all the way up untill 8:00am. Then they stop biting after that. What time of the day does bass bite good any info would be great thanks.

Switching lures, size or colors can usually get another bite or two. Early this month I hit 3 smallies within 30 minutes, then the bite died. I moved to other spots and later that day we came back and my friend caught two more. He also threw a lure a size bigger than before. Smallmouths usually stay in schools and if there's one, most of the time there are others. I would be patient and work the area a bit more.

My experience is that smallies have their favorite spots, but they move in and out a lot.  Quite a few times I've struck out at a favorite spot in the morning, then have gone back in the afternoon and found them there.  Usually it happens like this if there is a switch in the wind, mostly a pickup in wind velocity.  Seems to bring them back.  Smallies seem to like wind and sun.  I'm talking big water smallies, Saginaw Bay and St Clair.
