First smallie in two years

Recommended Posts

Back in 08-09, I had a place on the New River that was just a honey hole.  I could catch some NICE smallies.  Well last year, it was a long cold winter.  A bunch of ice formed on the river and was just putting up on the banks it got so bad.  As a result, thousands of fish died and ended up at Bilsby Dam. 

I think it hurt the fish population pretty bad because now you cant hardly catch a fish there now.  This time of year it was no problem to go and catch ten apiece that were 2 1/2 lbs+. 

Well i finally caught one and it felt so good to catch a smallie again!

here are pics from this weekend:

Nice fish! Look at how it's eyes are locked down. Did you catch it on a bottom lure, jig,grub,tube,etc...?
