Default 9/27 Report

I fished for about six hours on Thursday 8:30-2:00, Caught a lot of smallies(and one largemouth), 20+, but most were the smaller variety 8-10", with maybe a handful of 12-13" types. I was using spinning gear and most of the fish were caught on a small fluke and a few on wacky 3" senko. Water is very clear with quite a bit of floating weeds to contend with. The water continues to cool, no thermometer, but I would guess upper 50s to low 60s. A great day to be out fishing, looks like the weather will be nice again next week so maybe another outing then.

I was out thur too. had a 4lb smallie jump off at the boat she was pretty. jumped 4 times and came off as i was reaching for her. no pic but good memory. she was mid river on a front end of a large hole, hit a shallow crank in sexy shad. got one 13"r on a 3" chigger craw and some big blowups on top water. seemed we had to burn it to get reaction strikes. we saw a ton of carp (like hundreds in 5-10lb range) with some big smallies mixed in with them, but once we saw em they were gone. water is so clear and low its tuff to sneak up on em. glad you had a better # day than us it'll keep me going out. good luck and tight lines!
