Hit the Kokosing this morning about 9. In four hours caught 10 smallmouth a foot or bigger. The river is hot today! Fished from route 3 bridge on west side of Mt. Vernon to downtown bridge and caught most of them on a 3 inch white fluke. Great morning!
I rig them texas style and only weight them if I am in fast water. The biggest fish all seemed to be in slower holes right below riffles/rapids and would hit when I would twitch the lure. Had two young guys about 100 yards ahead of me catching a bunch of smaller ones on spinners.
