Well I finally did it. I got myself a smallie today. Only a 12'' model but it was alive. Its still hard for me to believe but I took a picture of him so I can go back to it when I wake up. Jig fishing a good rocky point and there he was, good hard hit and fought just like a smallie. One of the darkest I have ever seen coming out of the water but with in 20 seconds he started to lighten up to a nice olive-bronze. Ended a 6 hour day with 12 LM, biggest a 3.3lber and 1 SM. all on jigs. The word was the bass her hitting everything and heard some stories of a big fish or 2 being lost at the boat from some tourni guys but didn't seen any weight-ins to know what won. Water temp is up to 55-58 in spots and the color is like coffee with cream. All my fish came form 3-6 fow.
