first smallie in the boat for the year!

Recommended Posts

YAYHOO!!!!!

the smallies are finally in pre-spawn on good ole lake washington. caught 3, missed 2 hits, and lost one in the fight. the fish went 12", 15", and 17.5". the conditions wern't the best out there today. the water temp dropped a couple degrees since yesturday, there was a tourny going on, and the wind was BAD (and i have a smallish boat). so i was very limited on what i could do, only fished 3 hours till the wind kicked me off. caught them in 15'-25' next to bridge pillars on a dropshot. all released.

Nice looking fish. Whats the water temp over there? Its still high forties.. almost 50 here... Eastern Wa.

it was 49-50. i went out on friday evening and it was 53, but the fishing was a lot worse. i only got 2 hits and one fish around 2lbs.

Good start for sure. I love fishing bridge piers for smallies. They seem to almost always hold some fish. Good job, you must have been holding your mouth right, lol. :)

this isn't a smallmouth but it came from the same lake.....and i didn't think it was worth starting a whole new thread. caught her on a spinnerbait in a shallow slough. water temp. was 55*. should be making beds pretty soon...
