  3. IMG_20170903_104654363.jpg Had two very nice smallie trips over the long W/E . I fished poppers exclusively and the bite was great.
    I stayed on smaller water and the fish were not huge but provided steady action.

    Oddly I actually saw very few carp but I was surprised to tempt 4 different fish to actually take the popper. I was able to land two, another tried to take but missed and I was over anxious on the last fish and as he slurped at the fly I reacted to quickly and pulled it away from him.
    I've caught carp on poppers before but only during some type of major hatch, mainly cicadas or around an area with a tremendous amount of grasshoppers but I saw few insects on the water during my trips and found their willingness to come to the top very strange but welcome :D

  4. among the trout I was catching this weekend, this little war paint shiner eagerly tried to slurp down the caddis dry pattern I was using. When setting the hook at the moment he took it (thinking trout) the fly came back with him and hit me in the chest!

  5. I send a couple of small sunfish flying over the weekend, none struck me :D but I always feel sorry for those little guys when they come zipping out of the water.
    Good luck and Good Fishing !

    I did that with a smallie that was as big as the clouser he tried to eat. Whipped him just past my ear. He swam away unfazed so hopefully he survived.

    Got out for a couple hours today. Caught 4 smallies and 3 rock bass. Lost a tank though. They were hitting hard and doing acrobatics.[​IMG]

  9. Nice, gotta love fall ! I noticed the fish were jumping more also, wasn't sure if it was the cooler temps or because I was fishing topwater, probably a little of both.
    Good luck and Good Fishing.

  10. Had probably my most fun outing of the year on Friday morning. It wasn't the highest numbers of the year, and I didn't catch any giants, but it was just pure fun. Everything was working. Smallies had the feed bags on.

    Most of the carp have left the small creeks I fish but the few I found were willing to take a crawfish pattern, Unfortunately I doubt I will catch many more this season.
    Good luck and Good Fishing !

  13. The crappie bite was hot at lunch today. It's not often I hit double digits in a 50 minute outing in this kind of heat.

    Dolomieu got me started on the topwater bite ---- and Now I can't stop.
    (The cooler temps have me thinking hybrids/Wbass soon but we need some precipitation in my area)
    Good luck and Good Fishing !

  17. I don't catch many sauger on the fly. I was testing a new small streamer at lunch. The second photo I take as a good sign. Stamp of approval: trying to straight up swallow it.

  18. Sauger sure are a beautiful fish, looks like great camo and they're tasty.
    I don't get to many on the fly either but I do always get excited when I hook one.
    Mind sharing a pic of that streamer soon.
    Good luck and Good Fishing !
