2 Smallies on 1 cast for the first time

Recommended Posts

Caught these two smallies on the same cast with a Lucky Craft Sammy. When I was bringing them to the boat I thought I had one and another one was following close. First time I have ever done this, really cool experience.

Yeap, they are getting aggressive and competing for food... That's always a good sign. You're into the prime time for smallies so keep fishing :)

Congrats on the double!

If you have a partner in the boat this time of year, it is always a good idea for them to throw in right near your fish.  Schooled up smallies will chase that fish all the way back to the boat at times, and another bait quite often gets hit at the same time.  That's the other kind of double.

I get to fish a lot so I get several opportunities to double up. One can increase the possibilities of doubling by using multiple treble hook baits (duh) and reeling in the hooked fish slowly! Other fish in the school have more time/opportunity to get the bait out of the hooked fish's mouth.

I had two separate doubles in a half hour this fall holding a hooked fish in the water about fifteen feet from the boat for an extra 10 seconds while waiting for a client to get a lure near the school of followers. I wouldn't recommend keeping a hooked fish dangling until exhaustion sets in, nor will I use this tactic in warmer waters for fear of injuring the bass.
