what is the river?  I have fished a few rivers here for smallies and I can usually catch them dragging a tube or a jig.  I went to a bright red color skirt recently and that has been working very well.

I fish the Delaware here in PA and I've been seeing the bite change suddenly throughout the day. Try throwing some top water poppers and jerk-baits as well as swimming grubs, spinnerbaits and tubes.

Are you fishing the same area all the time? I have noticed if I leave an area alone for a while the bite comes back on.

If you can see the fish there and there not biting. They might be getting line shy. Try using a 100% flouro in the 8lb range. Also like posted already. Tr using small tubes. I personally like the mizmo slimjim. You can also give a grub a try. Fro them I like to use the slider grub. Black hair jigs also work great. Back off the fish and make long cast over the back side of them. You can also try changing the angle you are retrieving your bait over the fish. Sometimes they will get that pickie and only pick it up coming from a certain direction.

This is what I've seen - others have mentioned it as well. If you can see them - they can see you - They may have sensed your presence well before they saw you. Next time you're out, apply the most stealth you can. That means don't go over to where you think the fish are to check if they are there. (Either fishing from shore or a boat) Stop a good long cast away and make your best presentation. On some very spooky SMB, I turn off the Trolling motor and sonar a good distance away and either paddle or drift with the wind to get into casting range. Sometimes that's what it takes. With a little luck, they will not be aware you're there and be more apt to ****** up your offering. Along with the solid advice already given here you'll have a good shot at taking a few of those toads. Good Luck.
