1. Caught another 3 1/2 lb bass. This one hit next to an embankment. I didn’t get a good hook set, and he spit it. 20 mins later, I casted to the same spot, and he ...more hit again. I didn’t miss the second time. He was blind in one eye.

  2. I literally said, “Last cast,” when this late-season smallie hit close to sunset. Caught from shore.

  4. Slow, clear day, almost no wind. Bite was slow and sporadic, but I did catch 13 fish this morning, only two smallies (mostly largemouths). This was the biggest of ...more the smallmouth, so nothing huge. I also caught a good-sized channel cat (at least 8 lbs). Poor thing had a big hook and about a foot of braid in its mouth from a previous fisherman. I removed the hooks and line, then released it.

  6. Biggest of 18 fish caught. All of the smallies were in the 2-3 lb range. Action picked up when the wind created a light surface chop.

  7. Caught six smallies about this size. Today was a fishing potluck. I caught 28 fish total, 5 different species, and 18 bass (I don’t count rock bass as a bass). Fun ...more day!

  9. This walleye surprised me, while I was fishing for bass. I was lucky that he didn’t bite me off. Wish I had a live well (though these big eyes aren’t as tasty as ...more the smaller ones). Released quickly, and it swam away fine after a little tail winding.

  10. Largest of eight bass (17 total fish) today. Unbelievably crowded on the water today. 2-3 foot just from the continuous boat wakes.
