Default Kank 8/5/13

Got 2 nice smallies and a decent largie prior to and during the showers today. The smallies seemed to shut down in the rain but I got the largemouth on a small white buzzbait during the rain. All fish caught near the I55 bridge-the 2 smallies on a Fluke. The one smallie pictured a "tub" at 2.75 lbs? The smallies were in a small, fairly shallow riffle run between 2 islands.

Nice Fish! We kicked a giant up by that island last weekend, probably in the 4-5 lb range. That stretch of water willows is loaded with largemouth as well. The farther downstream you go the bigger they get.
