Thats a great smallie from any watershed let alone CJ!
Nice job!

That certainly is a nice smallie. CJ is underrated for its population and quality of fish. I'm still shocked the ODNR doesn't list smallmouth as one of its species and give a forecast. Maybe they don't want to, but I've caught several nice ones out of there while fishing for something else. And if you fish at night, several other fishermen know too. They will fish a certain part of the lake at night specifically for large smallmouth.

yea... they do under-rate the lake for its smallmouth population because a buddy of my dad's caught one last year at the marina off the rocks that was almost 6lbs... but thanks for the replies.

How long was that smallie? Seems as though a 4lber would be pushing fish Ohio status. I've caught numerous fish 18"- 19" from there that only weighed 3.5 to 3.75lbs this time of year.
