First smallie

Recommended Posts

I grew up fishing creeks in the Shenandoah Valley for stocked trout, as well as tying my own flies.

My buddy has me hooked on bass fishing now.  This was my first smallie ever, caught on the potomac with a pearl white 3/8 oz. swimbait, 2 days ago.

It's roughly 3"'s away from my 260 lb. body, I'd say roughly just over a pound, based on what I caught today after weighing them.

I'm hooked, he definitely put up a fight, my newbie self would compare it to a 3 pound largemouth I caught last week.

Once I started fishing for smallies on Missouri ozark streams/rivers, largemouths and resevior fishing of other species took a distant back seat immediately.
