Got out for a few hours 8-6. Found the fish very cooperative :) Started throwing a red and white deceiver and caught several Smallies a couple small Hybrids and one small spot. No monsters but a couple hard fighters. Most of the fish were taken in faster water near tails of pools. Fun evening on the water.

Fish weekdays or after Labor-day or during a light rain--- you won't encounter a crowd :) Good luck !

Great job on the multispecies bass! Do you fish much topwater this time of year, and if so do you have much luck?

posted using Outdoor Hub Campfire
Normally I fish top-water quit often. Only a few times this year---So-Far. Excellent way to catch Smallies and Rock-bass. Most summers find me throwing either a Crayfish or a small popper especially on small creeks and trib. As a general rule the smaller the water the more surface oriented the fish become.
This season I've seen very few crayfish in the streams that I have fished. Anyone else notice a absence of crawdads ? ?

garhtr, how do you like that reel? I've been looking for a cheap reel to put on a rod I don't use much anymore and that one caught my eye.

And those are some nice fish!

It seems to be pretty decent, 6 oz, holds 175 yards of backing, Drag is smooth. I picked it up in the Bargain Cave at Cabelas in Columbus for 20 bucks.{Time will be the real test} A friend gave my a 9ft 7-wgt Shimano ''Aeroglas'' rod and my Idea was to have a cheap outfit I could leave in my work truck at all times. I didn't care for the rod so I ordered the 3 Forks rod its on now. Still gonna pick up something for the Shimano rod someday soon.

That is awesome man! I was out on the LMR allll day a little bit ago, and only caught a few dink smallies. I tried mostly clousers, some with bead chain and some with lead eyes, different colors, etc. It was a slightly cooler day though so that may have something to do with it.
