      To me it makes sense there would be smallmouth in mosquito because the habitat is there. I was not trying to claim that there was without a doubt no smallmouth bass ...more there I just am hypothesizing that the numbers are low and (from what I have heard) lower than they used to be which makes me think they are maybe eventually going to be forced out of mosquito through competition with better established species. I haven't seen one in person but that doesn't mean I think they aren't there at all, especially when I hear someone like yourself having seen one while competing in a bass tournament. Anyways I was just speculating what was left of the smallmouth population in mosquito and thinking that their numbers aren't likely to increase without stocking. I don't really have any thoughts on whether it would make any sense to stock them in mosquito to increase their numbers, I would think it would probably be a bad idea as it could have a negative impact on the walleye fishery or it would most likely just not really work unless the stocking program was fairly aggressive and then it would likely have some noticeable effects on other species that may be undesireable to lots of people. Sorry for rambling about whatever I just typed(can't scroll up to make sure any of it makes sense), but it's cool to hear there are still some swimming in mosquito even if it's just basically a novelty catch do to the low population.
    3. Michael there is smallmouth in mosquito but it's rare to catch one I fished a tournament there last year and a guy had one in his bag. However tho this is a ...more largemouth

      I could be wrong but to my knowledge there are no smallmouth bass in Mosquito, just largemouth as far as black bass go. I have heard people who I consider to be ...more reliable sources say that Mosquito had smallmouth bass years ago but I have been fishing Mosquito for decades and have never caught nor seen anyone catch a smallmouth bass. My guess is they have been forced out of the lake through competition from all the other more numerous species like largemouth bass, walleye, northern pike etc. If there are any smallmouth in mosquito anymore than the population must be struggling to where they are barely able to reproduce and if there are any left they won't be there much longer without a stocking program.
    5. Thank you David;)

      nice ones!! I'm heading to Mosquito tomorrow because it's my birthday and I told the boss man I need some ice time πŸ˜‚ Do you mind informing me if that was ...more north or south of the causeway? I'm thinking about trying somewhere near the cemetery at daybreak... Hoping the baby perch will be more subdued at sunrise.
