Small Mouth Bass

The size of the fight in this dog is why we keep coming back for more. The best time is mid to late May thru the first couple weeks of June and is catch and release only. Best baits are tube jigs. During the summer and fall live bait is needed usually but they can be caught on drop shots with plastics. Live bait is soft craws and with 6 fishermen about 20 doz. at 6.75 per is normal. Springtime is THE best but it is ALL catch and RELEASE.
