Smallmouth at CJ Strike

How Was The Fishing?

Smallmouth were biting along the bank in the reservoir and in the slow water below the spillway. A black, gold, and red Panther Martin spinner seemed like the only thing that would catch them. The bigger spinner the better.

Tried and failed to catch crappie. Maybe in a week or two they'll be biting better.

Believe it or not, one smallie had the hook shown below in its lower digestive track (not stomach). Quite the surprise.
