 Hit some quality time with the wife on the river.










I fish for those "stupid fish" BASS. Largemouth Smallmouth Stripers, and even Rock bass.

Cool!  Nice fish!  I wish my wife would fish with me more.  You're a lucky guy.

6/4 up date  hit the river with friend Bill. Eight fish over 12 inches caught. Plus several shorts and your occasional rock bass. Plenty of dead Shad at this point. Eagles all over the place. Water temp was 64. Biggest fish of the day 3 lbs. 11 oz. 21 inches.



 Friend Bill caught this nicely patterned smallmouth.

6/14  hit the river for my birthday. Ended up boating  12 smallmouth 14 inches and above. Biggest was 3 pounds just a bit over. Saw at least five Sturgeon biggest close to 3 feet and bunch O Carp.  Water was still a bit stained and 68°. Dead and dying Shad all over the place starting to get a bit stinky.

Sounds like a great day on the water outside of the shad stink.  Pretty neat seeing sturgeon as well.  I had a buddy catch one soaking bloodworms several years back that was about 3 feet as well.  We got the hook out as quickly as possible and sent her back into the water.  There may or may not be a pic of it floating around on an old phone.

6/19 hit the river for five hours this morning with the wife. Water level as low as it’s been all summer. Some spots that were perfectly fishable last couple of trips already now Only have about a foot of water. However we did manage 10 smallmouth over 12 inches I got seven Laurie ended up with three. Bunch of shorts. Water temp up to 71°

Nice smallies.  I remember fishing up that way and being shocked how quickly the depth changes.  The smallie fishing is dependable for sure.

Thanks for sharing!

Wouldn't lower water levels concentrate the fish in deeper holes making them easier to locate?
