More Cannon Sized Smallies
May 18, 2004
Fred was back today, but this time with his Niece, Emilie. She hasnt fished much and I was determined to get her into a few cannon sized smallmouth. Air temp 61, humid & damp with drizzle. Wind S/SW 5 to 10 mph increased to 10 to 20 with gusts closer to 35 mph. Just a lovely day! Emilie caught several big fish, up to 4 pounds and many little ones around 1 to 2 pounds as well. By afternoon we had to change lakes due to the big waves it was producing. We relocated on a nearby, smaller lake and tried to get into a fewtrout, but missed two strikes with the fly lines. Once again, we were forced off the lake when an electrical storm blew in. Probably the toughest day on the water this year thanks to Mother Nature!!!
