I had a difficult time deciding where to go this morning. I decided against making the long trip to the Mad River (afraid to spend $20 in gas only to find that it was unfishable), and also had to rule out trying for saugeye on the GMR (boring). I decided to wade a creek for some smallies (first time fishing this creek). Fished with a 3.5 Snoozer Tube and a 1/8oz EZ rattling weight. GOOD IDEA! It started slow, but I though that I was getting bites. I was already fishing the tube slow, but I slowed it down even further (painfully slow). BAM! My first smallie of the year, and a personal best at 18.
