Hit the river today with my buddy.We landed 22 smallies in 2 hrs.12 were 16to 17 inches long and very hefty.It was his first time smallmouth fishing and I'm pretty sure he his hooked.This brings my total of smallmouth for the year somewhere around 85. I think I finally figured out that section of the river.Time to head the other way and try to solve the deeper water. Maybe find some pike bigger than 25 inches. Anyone have any tips on pike fishing? The only ones I have caught have been while trying to get smallies.Any help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks!!
