The smallmouth season is pretty much done for Presque Isle Bay. There are still a few smallies in the bay, but most have returned to the main lake. I held back from ...more posting this picture, because this was a good spot for me in early May, and I didn’t want it over-fished (I have had several fishermen come up to me at various lakes and say that they recognize me from Fishidy). It was hot for about 3-5 days and then went back to normal. The day before I caught this smallmouth, I won a tournament at this spot, catching what was then my personal best smallie (5 lbs 8 oz and 20 1/4 inches). In rougher weather, I returned to the spot on the next day. It was on fire again, and, again, I caught my PB smallmouth, besting my previous day’s PB by one ounce at 5 lbs 9 oz. The bass that second day averaged 4 pounds. It was a great spring at PIB. I can’t wait to go there next spring.
A Father’s Day bass on a steamy Father’s Day afternoon session on Cross Creek. The bass heated up in the afternoon, along with the air temperature. It was a numbers ...more day. This was the biggest of 25 largemouths—mostly dinks. They were hitting on the drop offs and the outside grass edges. A fun way to spend Father’s Day.
This past weekend, I entered my third tournament with the Kayak Anglers of Western PA at Pymatuning. I started the morning off well with three keepers. I was able ...more to get my five fish limit (only a third of the anglers had limits). I caught 18 bass overall, but was unable to cull my two smallest fish. I finished the day in 16th out of 96 anglers with 76.25 inches. I needed one big fish to place in the money. The next morning, I had a good day in Presque Isle (10 bass, 4 smallmouth). Still a few smallies in the Bay.
