Went out last night for about 1.5 hours. Throwing the pearl colored zulu the whole time. The first hole along a rocky bank point, no smallmouth hits, but was able to catch a hammer handle pike along the weeds I was standing by. Moved down river to a stretch that has a large flats area and drops off the table to about 3 to 4 feet. Imagine a football field underwater about a foot deep and then dropoffs along the sideline and endzone. I was fishing the corner of the endzone where it drops off on both sides. I caught a 16.5 inch smallie that had about 14 inch follower. Casted for awhile longer at this spot with no hits. Moved further down river to an old log out in the middle of the river where I caught a nice one over the weekend. I had a couple of hits but no takers. I can tell someone else has found this spot because the weeds were trampled. Moved further downstream to a shallow faster moving water area. Had about 3 or 4 hits, but they just weren't taking it in. I then moved down river again and fished under a bridge. Same thing, had a handful of hits, but they just weren't sucking the bait in. I was finally able to catch one by letting the fish really take it for a long period of time before I set the hook, it was maybe 12 inches. Moved back up stream to the old log and caught a rockbass. After that I moved back to where I caught the first smallmouth and caught a 10 inch and 14 inch smallmouth. Starting to get dark I moved back to where I started and caught one more hammer handle pike. Then it was too dark to fish any longer. I sure hope this rain turns things on around here.
