Early Fall Fishing ~ Take Two

Recommended Posts

On a morning much like yesterday except with a cooler

NE breeze we set out in search of some Brown Bass.

We put a hurtin' on them yesterday so today we checked

out some "new" spots. This, as it turned out, was a very

good move. At least for my wife anyway. On the days

she takes her chemo, I always try to take her out with

me if she's feeling up to it. And today she took me to

school (again). This time with really light tackle and a

3.5 inch tube. She had one of those days we'll talk about

for a long time. She was hooking, fighting and landing

fish at just about every place we stopped - and I was a

helpless net man for most of the trip - nothing to do but

just shake my head and smile. I finally did manage to

keep the skunk out of the boat with 1 respectable SMB

right at the end of the day - it was touch and go there

for a while.

The fish pictured are two of the fattest and prettiest SMB

she's landed ever.

Great photos and beautiful fish!  I always enjoy watching others catch them just as much as when I do.

Some fine photos indeed! Smallies are truly beautiful! How deep were you fishing? What was the water temperature? Around my neck of the woods, the smallies are moving shallower now - 20' - 25' at most. Our water temps are in the upper 60's & low 70's.

They are gorgeous ! We were fishing is 15-20 feet and the water temps are @ 65-67. The water in these local lakes is GIN CLEAR - like drinking water clear. We have this thing we do - mentally we subtract 10 feet from whatever the actual depth is, and that's how we fish it. So if it's 15 feet deep, we fish it like it's only 5 feet - it makes us fish quiet and carefully. These fish get a little beat up all summer but after Labor Day the "resident fisherman" either bail south or break out the hunting gear and leave the fish to us. Also a majority of fisherman troll for walleyes so that helps as well. :)

An example is yesterday we had an elderly gentleman like 80 stop us at the ramp and ask how the fishing was. (He and his son were pulling their boat for the summer - bye-bye). He had seen us out a few times and was wondering how we did. He told us he's been here 60 years and by all accounts "This is a LOUSY fishing lake" We had to break out the camera and call up the photos from the last two days - I still don't think he believed us - can you imagine two days of SMB fishing where we caught and released several fish between 18-20 inches and three over 21 and he lives there and thinks it's LOUSY - thank you Sir, may I have another . . . . .
