Went out for only a couple hours, still beat from fishing the gmr this morning.
Walked right up on a gorgeous doe walking in, nice way to start things.
I ended up with seven smallmouth in the two hours on three different lures, the common denominator being that it seemed the fish hit when something triggered them. Caught a couple on a crankbait burning it back, I think the lure zips by and the fish strikes without thinking sometimes. Caught one on an inline spinner as it yanked free from some weeds and the rest on a grub.
But instead of just swimming the grub back I would let it pause then snap the rod up making the grib move erraticlly, just the opposite of how I normally fish it. Had a big smallie swipe at the lure right at the rod tip but didn't hook her. A guy fishing for catfish caught about a seven pound shovelhead while I was there also. Then on the way out walked right by another deer at twenty feet as it just froze, a very nice short trip to the river
