So are these fish exceptional at throwing the hook or am I doing something wrong. I've had 5 in the 10-12" range on the end of my line in the last few days and have only gotten my hands on two of them.

Its one of the best fighting fish for there size! I fish for smallies all the time in the rivers and on the lake my favorite is fishing for them with ultralite tackle or 5 wt fly fishing! You got to try it its a blast the fight like little bulls !!!!!!!!!!
I've always been a lake guy so it was always largemouth for me. I went up to Waterworks Park on Monday and hooked a little 12 inch smallie on a rebel craw, thought I had a monster! Those things are crazy, jumping and flipping around. Definitely hooked. Give it a try if you haven't already.
