1st River Smallmouth of '08

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by jojopro, Apr 17, 2008.

  1. While targeting steelhead today on the Rocky River I caught my first smallmouth bass of the year. It was just a little guy at about 10-12 inches but it fought hard enough to make me think that I had a steelie on for a while. I hooked it on a soft plastic minnow, and this was my first ever smallmouth on a centerpin. Made for a nice 'bonus fish' while steelheading.

  2. Gotta love the smallies! Thx for the report.
    I'm getting tired of my 'bonus fish'; the illustrious SUCKER.
    Time to hit the lakes!
