    Nice smallie!
  15. Wow! Great catch! I really need to get up there some time and try to find some of hawgs. I have caught a couple that were a bit smaller than that in Canada so I know what those fish are capaable of. I am sure that thing was quite a fight.

    Nice fish Marcia!!! I bet that fish felt like a 25# sheephead when you were bringing him in. Nice fish!

    That fish definitely makes me proud, thats for sure :D
    This fish fought a bit differently than the other smallmouth that I have ever caught. Normally, a smallmouth is a very arial fish. They will break water way far away from the boat....But, this one stayed under.. real deep.... more like a sheephead or catfish pull.... constantly diving... The darn thing went under my boat, and lucky for me, the propeller didnt cut the line. That would have have been the worst thing!!!!!
    I absolutely love smallmouth bass.. They are so beautiful with their sweet little red eyes and gorgeous coloring....
