First Smallmouth Of The Year!

Glad to report my first smallmouth of the year! Been three or four times already with no success, water was way to cold. But Saturday I left the river victorious with 11 bass total: 4 Rock Bass, 6 Smallmouth, 1 Spotted Bass. Not a record breaking day by any means but to me it marks the beginning of a great season.
The biggest Smallmouth was 12" which for this area is pretty good.

That's encouraging to hear......I hope things will be picking up around here as well with the warming weather.

Thanks for the report.

Yea we are up to our eyes in water here too. It really sucks because this is right in the middle of the big striper run on the Ohio River, and I'm stuck at the house watching my car float down the road
