RE:Spring Smallmouth Bass in New England
Interesting. I rented a camp in Maine last July 4th on Highland lake in Bridgeton. There were some nice Smallys in there. I caught a couple on a light spin tackle digression (largemouth fishing) and returned them gently. I am going to a similar lake this summer in Bridgeton in early Aug this year. Hope to do it with flies this year. Any suggestions for patterns?
While out last summer at dawn in the canoe, I noticed a few schooled up bunchs of Smallmouths with there dorsal fins above water.
I paddled right through some of these schools. They were all about 5 inchs long. Any ideas what they were doing? I evan casted into one with my Wooly and landed a couple.
