Smallmouth on FnF ?

Recommended Posts

A few years ago I invested in a couple of FnF setups hoping for winter smallmouth.  So far I have caught largemouth, spots, whites, carp, catfish, and 3 species of crappie but not one smallmouth.

3 days ago I got 10 smallmouth on top of a shelf while fishing for largemouth.  I got to thinking that they might have hit a FnF jig.  Since the weather is still warm and the water is 60° would it be better for me to make some larger FnF jigs instead of the little ones I have been using?  If so what color combinations would you recommend for clear water?

Here are some of the colors I have on hand.

I've known about the FnF technique for some time now, but have yet to try it. Only because it really doesn't make much sense to me. Let me explain my position: The concept of putting a fly (actually a light weight jig) deep is very valid. It works marvels on crappie using a 1/32 oz. marabou jig. However, why on God's earth would you use it the way it's proposed? Long (10' - 14') specialized rod and fixed bobber? Why not just use a 7' or 8' UL or fly rod and use a slip bobber? You'd have less casting problems and can vary your presentation depth a heck of alot easier. Am I missing something here? Please tell me why I need to spend another $100. on a rod I can only use a few times a year!
