Big Fat Smallmouth
May 17, 2004
Fred & I fished Memphremagog today with great success on the bigger fish. The morning air was a chilly 37 degrees but warmed up to 72 by the end of the day. The water temperatures were 57 to 63 degrees, depending on where you were and the wind was from the N but light & cool. Lots of bass roaming the shallows but not taking. Too close to the spawn! The offshore areas produced better quality fish. The pre spawn females were feeding! Average 3 to 5 pound fish were willing to take the Jerk-Baits with regularity. Close to, if not over 50 Smallmouth up to 5 pounds were caught today. Excellent day for size!
