Smallmouth bass fishing in the summer?

Recommended Posts

Hay!

A friend invited me to go to NC with him over the summer, fishing for smallies, but nether of use know much about small mouth bassin'. Being a south Florida boy, I know very little about smallies. So could you just give me the basic of small mouth bass fishing, line, lure, weight, tips, anything will be greatly appreciated!

BTW we will be fishing at bear lake, NC.

THANKS!

This entire section is dedicated to smallmouth fishing.

Why don't you spend some time reading back through

the first 50 pages or so? Just about everything all our

members know about the species is here.

spinning gear, grubs, tubes, 4" worms, small jigs, small cranks, small spinnerbaits, inline spinners.

start with small baits. if the fish are very aggressive or if you are catching too many dinks, use larger baits.

good luck

What kind of worms, curly tail, or straight like a senko?  how would I rig them, T-rigged or drop shot?

both. i like to use 4 inch senkos. t-rig, drop shot. whatever.

theyre like largemouth but they hang around structure not necessarily cover. fish rocky bottom. if there is an area with current, fish there. behind big rock blocking current = smallmouth.

favorite way for me to catch them is on a finesse jigs (bitsy bug,eakins) with small trailer, 1/4oz.

hope this helps,
