I fished with my wife, Christiane today on our 20th anniversary weekend fishing trip. Well, the weather held out, contrary to the forecast and that was a blessing. The air temps were in the upper 50’s and the water was as high as 52 degrees. The wind was still from the N/NE at 10 to 20 MPH by the days end, but that didn’t change the fishing. Our starting spot produced close to 50 fish and it continued at the same rate for the rest of the day as well. By the time it was all over there were more than 100 smallmouth bass up to 4.5 pounds caught & released. Both the jerk-baits and the jigs worked equally as well. Most of the fish were in the 20 to 30 foot range. The cold fronts seemed to send them deeper! Overall, the best day of the year!!
