7/26... My bad... Fished the West Branch of the Rocky River from 4:00-7:00pm. Ended up with 5 smallies and 1 creek chub. First creek chub I have caught on a lure. First 2 smallies came close to some structure (fallen tree) and were caught on a rebel craw and a mepps black furry spinner. Next fish came in some riffles on a soft plastic craw. At around 6:30 as I was working my back I started throwing my tiny torpedo and fish started going crazy. First cast fish hits and is "quick released". Next cast... same thing. I realized my drag was screwed up from playing around with it when I was snagged. After a couple more casts I got the creek chub. Landed 2 more smallies shortly after. Fish were on a frenzy, even hitting my line in the water. Eventually turned off and I tried one more spot with no luck. 3 fish in the 8-12" range and 2 dinks. Hope to get back out soon and get some bigger fish. Anyone else having luck with smallies on the Rock recently?? Snapped this one pic.
