Well i took my buddy out in boat mid-week for smallies at Alum so Mike called and said my turn to take you out. I got a stretch of river with plenty of nice Smallies and rock bass. I did not hesitate after seeing all the great river fishing that has been going on. We only had a couple hours so we headed right out. Beautiful day out,we fished mid-afternoon. Only fished 4 holes with great success. We got 18 smallmouth 10"-16" with 10 of them over 14" and the rockbass were huge!! All caught on different top water lures! The explosion on the lure was incredible,as well as the high flying display! One hole we got 8 nice ones i got the 2 pictured in 3 casts. What was fun was how we could see them rocket up and hit the lure which was making it hard to wait for them to get lure!! I ended up with 5 species on the same top water lure Smallmouth,Largemouth,Warmouth,Rockbass, Bluegill. Most fish today were in front part of holes to middle not much in back end of hole was happening. Water was up some and has a nice coolness to it. Thanks again Mike what a couple hours it was.
