Smallmouth Doubleheader!

Carrie and I have been busy this week shutting down the camp, but I did manage to take a few minutes to fish Sunday evening.  I was casting a green 1/4 oz. jig with a gray twister tail above the falls just a few yards off the dock.  On my 2nd cast I felt a solid hit and set the hook and a smallmouth came out of the water like a rocket.  He jumped completely out of the water two more times and fought like a heavyweight even though he only measured at 13″.

Then on the very next cast I hooked up again with another smallmouth – this one 12.5″!  

These two bumped our season total up to 22 smallmouth bass caught and released.  Smallmouth bass are tough fighters and a blast to catch.  Hopefully we”ll see many more caught and released next season!
