Hit my local spot today to fish a couple hours. I was afraid the cold weather lately would have an effect on slowing them down. Well...I was wrong-caught three or so and missed three or four more. The highlight of the day, though, was the biggest Smallie I've ever caught out of this spot. I've definitely caught bigger private water smallmouth and possibly one bigger one at chatty but this one was definitely nice. It crushed the t-rock flash pointer I paused next to it. Actually all the fish I caught today were on the same lure. I'm super stoked....these fish aren't monsters but i feel privileged to catch them. Being able to go out and hit them every time fifteen minutes from my house is pretty cool. Think I'm gonna concentrate on swimbaits now that I got a decent smallie on the jerk.
