Rockfish sent me a text and said he was hitting the river. I couldn't let a nice afternoon pass by so I decided to join him. We fished for about 3 1/2 hours and managed to boat 7 bass and lost a couple more. Pretty much everything was hitting on a white spinnerbait but one 2 pound smallie did get fooled by Mr Money.
The smallmouth have not moved to their winter hiding places just yet but who knows what all this rain will do to them. All of the bass were taken behind breaks in the current.
Here is Rockfish with the biggest of the day, a nice looking 2-10 Largie.
Here is my best of the day, a 2-1 smallmouth. This is the fish I wish I had not caught. As soon as I hooked him just up the river from me, a deer came into the river and decided to swim across the river. I would have much rather taken some photos and a video of her. But at least this guy put up a nice fight.
I think we have a little more time for the smallmouth before they move but you never know.
