best smallie yet

Recommended Posts

Hello, Last Thur. my wife and I got out for the day on a local lake. It was hot and the fishing was slow but I picked up a new P.B. smallie. I was lobbing a senko in about four ft. of water when it hit. It weighed around 3 1/2 lb on an old scale. I didn't think to measure the length. It would have weighed more but it was so thin, it looked like it hadn't eaten in weeks. It's odd because the lake is full of minnows, frogs, etc. It was a nice surprise as I was fishing for L.M. at the time.

Thanks for looking

JB

I think it is just the angle of the camera on the fish and its eye.  Great smallie.  Im heading back to upstate NY to fish and all ill catch all summer long is small mouth bass.  My largest is just over 20 inches long ... never weighed though.  I will tell you what though... smallies put up a better fight than any large mouth :P ehhe

Grats again

Hi, thanks for the responces. It's eyes were fine as I remember. And yes, it put up a better fight than most L.M. Does anyone have any idea why it was so thin? Maybe normal for this time of year? When I supported it on it's belly I could feel how shrunk in it was.

                                                             Again, thanks

The spawn is in full swing up there, I have been getting reports all weekend from Stratosdadri, 3-4 lb fish ALLL day long.  He has video of 2 LM's spawning together, very cool.

She is spawned out, that is why the tail is all torn up and she is skinny and EATING!!

Great fish, if you had gotten her a day or 2 earlier, you'd have a 4 lbr on your hands.  Keep fishing that same water, good genetics right there.
