I have seen a few posts referencing Ladue smallmouth. I would love to get into some. Any tips this time of year? Are they where the largemouth are? I keep hearing people mention weeds, but I typically find smallies around rocks in other lakes.

I got two smallies along the 422 rip rap on small crankbaits a few weeks ago, no size but good scrappers....

I've caught some big (4-5) lb smallies @ La Due. X Rap (6), Rogues. spinnerbaits, and buzzbaits. The big ones have been in the weeds, the dinks feed on tiny craws along the causeway.

A couple dandies on the hump south of the causeway. When they're in the weeds, they have a greenish color instead of brown ones around rocks and rip rap. Shallow weeds on the tops of the ridges on the west side of the main lake. Any where near the dam, with weeds in 4 - 8 fow. Smallies like craws, but they love shad too.

Indeed, the SMs I caught at the west shore weeds were greenish, different from the black ones from the 422 causeway. Thanks for the info.
