Big Smallies are NICE


Recommended Posts

A couple of Pals got into them pretty good a few days ago.

5 of them over 6 pounds, big one was 6# 8oz

Winter is just around the corner and they are putting on the feed bag.

Smallies, best freshwater fighting fish per pound. Love catching them.

It's been 70°+ here the last couple days...weird, and I'm not sure what it's doing to the fish.

Fishing is great...catching...not so much...

PA Susquehanna River 6 pound 9 oz Smallmouth Bass

I really like smallies. This is my best one ever, caught in the Susquehanna river north of Harrisburg, PA. 6 pounds 9 oz, after one night in my freezer because all the registered scales were closed by the time we got ashore.

 

Wonder what y'all used as a lure or as bait. I was using a large minnow.

That's a great Smallmouth.  My son caught the fish in the rain on a big Glide bait and the river fish in a weedless "ned" rig with a bit of skirt on it.

There are lots of really nice smallmouths in this thread. 

The guy at the fishing/bait shop with the registered scales we got the fish to after a night in my freezer said a fish lost 10% of its weight by being frozen. That if true, would put my fish at maybe right around 7 pounds, which is a big smallie for PA. I've no idea how big they get in other places?

I think there are big Smallies, like closing in on 8lbs in Lakes Ontario, Erie and Simcoe.  There was a 5 bass Canadian tournament record weighed in 3 years ago on Simcoe..31.84lb

 NY's record smallies are tied at 8lb. 4 oz., 1 out of Erie, other out the St. Lawrence a few years ago. During a tourney this summer, a Bassmaster angler landed a 7lb. 13oz. smallmouth. My best out of the St. Lawrence was around 6lbs. (1000 Islands).
