    Went fishing yesterday to my favorite little creek between class and work and boy did i get one hell of a surprise. I found out that my favortie creek has a 6lb 22in. Smallmouth bass owning it. By far the most thrilling fish I have caught in Ohio. As soon as she hit she came clean out of the water!!! After cleaning the load out of my pants i try to land this beast with my ultra light, 4lb test rig. Took me about 15 min. to get her in and boy she was not a happy fish.

    Wow really nice fish! I know around my way, you hear about 6 lbers in Erie and 4 and 5 lbers in the lakes, but now from the rivers much. I wished I could get one that size! Way to go and thanks for the post! :)
     
  5. I think it's all part of some kind of elaborate conspiracy scheme....but nice fish nonetheless...lol. By the pic, it looks like you were fishing around some good structure.

  13. That is a PIG! I had given up on the smallies for the year ( I did not have a very good year with the smallies). But, I think that I might give them another try this year.

    Yeah rooster i would definitely start hitting the creeks and rivers for smallies right about now. The creek that i fish i catch smallies up until ice starts to form. I mostly use crank baits, that way if they are not hungry the noise will at least piss'em off enough to strike. I also use roostertails, basically smaller baits and slower movement works best late in the year. Good luck to you guys and remember to let that trophy go so my future grand kids can have a shot at'em.
