Okay so I have a problem... in all the hours that I have spent with my boyfriend fishing for smallies I have yet to catch one. He of course says it's cause I am a girl and don't know how to fish. Which of course is not true except with small mouth. We go to this lake and I can catch the crap out of large mouth then when we go to a spot on the gmr I can get quite a few nice crappie and rock bass but no small mouth! I even have caught a monster of a carp. I have tried everything it seems with no luck. In the same spots that he gets them with the same lure and nothing! Do any of you have any suggestions that might help? I have tried crankbaits, spinners, rooster tails, everything! The large mouth and crappie I have no problem. Could it possibly be the way I return it? I am at a loss and I am getting tired of taking all the pictures, I would like to be in a few of those.
