Got in the water just after 4 this afternoon and almost froze through my waders. I stuck with it and walked down to a hole that looked promising and tossed a popper among some downed branchs. Got rolled on by what I thought was an average smallie but soon found out different when my 6' medium light rod almost bent in half. I pulled in my 3rd 20" smallie of the fall and she was nice and thick. Unfortunately I caught only one other just as I was leaving at 6:30 and it measured only 8" or so.
