  1. I hit the LMR today and man am I glad I did! I went targeting smallmouths but unfortunately I didnt get one, but Im glad to say I did manage 4 sauger(10-13 in range) and a 4 lb sucker of some kind.

    Overall I was pretty happy. I did have one bite from a Smallie but I didnt get him in :( . Im also happy to say that I found this place to fish(although it is public) all by myself and was very happy to catch some fish on a spot that I found by just exploring!!

  2. Sounds like a good night!!!... the smallies are definitely on and off right now... Saturday Young whiskers and I caught about 50 smallies.....but i went out the other day and only got 1........ But i do manage a sauger about every other time i go.... not targeting them...
    give it time... they should
    turn on!! GL

  3. Yeah I was really hoping for a smallie but thats ok, at least I caught fish. All fish were caught using a chat/orange jig and grub. Young and his dad told me I should have that color combo so I got some and Im glad I did!!!

    lol....cant believe you didn't switch up off that weecraw after just catching dinks....especially with your great soft plastic skills....hehe.
    I am glad you didn't switch off though :)
    I was thinking of the last weekend in June for another tourney...what do you think?
  5. It is always fun to find a nice new spot on your own and learn to fish it with success. I had that experience with my Dad earlier this year and we plan on fishing the area we "discovered" quite a bit this summer to continue to develop our knowledge base on the overall river system as a whole.
    Glad you had a good day!
