River Smallies

Recommended Posts

We found a hole about 12-16 feet deep that held some smallies and walleye with rock structure. Flow is not too fast. Visiblity is about 1-2 feet. Caught a 26 and 28 inch walleye and a few smallies on crankbaits running about 10 feet. I am sure this holds more smallies and probably bigger that the 12 inch fish we caught. Was thinking about a C-Rig Tube to search but was wondering if anyone else has ideas. We will hit this hole Sunday so input would be appreciated.

What's the water temp?

Is the "hole" an isolated one or are there more like it close by?

Ths time of year river smallmouth will be migrating toward their winter homes, usually a place that lacks significant current and is deep, at least deeper than surrounding water.

Try a small baits on a drop shot, tubes rigged w/ 1/8 or 3/16 oz exposed hook tube heads.

There is another hole around the bend that lacks rocks but does have a sand bottom. I plan on working this hole also. there is a slightly shallower hole just before this hole where another river which has a muck bottom dumps into it. Did not locate anything there. The water temperature is roughly 50-58 degrees so I am sure they are in a transitional period.
