first 2010 smallie

Recommended Posts

Fishing the Susquehanna today got one pretty nice smallie. Got him on a strike king 3" tube. Hopped it once or twice then let it sit for a while seen my line take off then set the hook on him. He really swallowed that tube too, it sucks that its bout to snow again I'm ready for more smallie action. I will have pics next time.

Great to hear! Thanks for posting this. It won't be long now before the ice frees up water here abouts. Can't wait!

Why wait? Got open water? Then fish! Tubes, hard jerks, drop shot. Something will bite.

I like to wait till its in atleast the 40s. But really as long as I'm comfortable enough and not to cold to focus I will give it a try. I just like to see consistency in the temps.

I still haven't gotten on my first one of the year. It's supposed to be 70 degrees here Saturday, so I'm really hopping this is the weekend!

Awesome!

We've been nailing them on the river up here, at least until the water clarity suffered from the thaw.

This is the one time of year I prefer to bank-fish the river. Those key wintering spots always hold fish. Good way to get the rust off before the lakes thaw...

We've been getting most of ours on jigs and crankbaits.

Congrats!

Did you fish from shore?

I had not got a chance to hit the Susqy. Is it free from ice already? Thanks!
