Default not as good today as yesterday

yesterday I went to kilbuck and my first cast a northern decent came up and just engulfed my lure I was using 4lb line so I didn't even get a chance to set the hook I just feel bad for the fish having that lure stuck in it's gullet. After that I headed up stream and caught many smallies only one decent one about 14 in and one black crappie. I caught the big one on a yo -zuri arms shad and the rest came off a 1/8 oz jig with a 2in charteuse mister twister tail. Today however in the river it was disappointing I started in belvedere park below dam caught one smallie 15 in that was it. Then I headed to baumann park and was killing the largemouth but they were so small I had to leave however compared to the majority I did catch 2 13 in and a black crappie but then I proceeded to the rock were it meets thee kish and when I first got there I saw a fallentree right next to shore so I pitched a spider grub in there and low and behold about a 3lb largemouth had my lure in it's mouth but I had just changed lures and I let my drag all the way loose and forgot to reset it and when I set the hook I just heard a loud whizzing sound and the bass was off. I fished up and down the shore many different lures and notta nothing there were people on the other side of the river who caught two walleyes whicih I was surprised I thought they'd still be spawning may be some are just starting while others could be finishing.Just like to share.

Sounds like you had a busy day, man. Might I ask what you used for bait/what lures at Bauman?
