Tied My Pb Smallmouth (Again)

Recommended Posts

I decided to fish one of my favorite smallmouth lakes Sunday afternoon and all day Monday. Second cast with a Sammy and got my first fish of the trip.

I was hoping that meant I was going to tear them up but it wasn't happening. I caught a few more before I went to the dam and lost probably the biggest smallmouth I've ever hooked, it was 5 for sure which would tie my PB. Only put maybe 10 fish in the boat from 4pm-9pm Sunday night so it was pretty tough. Monday started slowly but picked up as the wind started to blow and it warmed up. The fish were eating a small tube but I picked up a little LC C.B.D.S zero crankbait and caught a nice 3 pound walleye pretty quickly.

We went to try a spot my partner suggested off a flat point. He was fishing the tube and I was throwing the crankbait. I hooked what I thought was a limb or drum because it was just kind of dragging in and not really fighting. All the the sudden it stopped and jumped and I couldn't believe the size of the smallmouth that I had hooked and was really nervous about the small hooks and the fact that I only had one hook in the fish. After a long and tense fight, Dick finally managed to get the net under her. She was only 20 inches long but 5 pounds exactly with what I think was a big crappie tail sticking out of her throat.

I caught another one that was probably 3 pounds later in the day on the same crankbait but didn't even bother taking a picture after catching a 5 pounder.

Thanks for the kind words guys! I've been really lucky to catch 3 smallmouth this size in a state not known for any size smallmouth bass. At first I wasn't even sure it was a fish because she was in such shallow water, I thought I may have caught a limb because she was just swimming towards the boat and not fighting. When she jumped my heart almost stopped and I could see that little crankbait flopping around and I figured it was really just a matter of time before she came off. I fought her very carefully and managed to keep her from jumping the rest of the fight. I won't be forgetting the fight anytime soon. :D

A 5lb smallie around here is trophy sized. I would love to hook into one of those.

Nice one!!! I have been fishing for smallmouth a lot here lately. The biggest I have got was a 3 1/2 lber. I'm still looking for my 5 lber. Congrats again!!!
