Looks like a yak attack.

I have one hell of a last 10 days or so. If I am not at the cafe by 7:30am, start without me.

I'm sure I'll be there, just might be running a bit late. ( I don't own an alarm clock)

Looking forward to getting out with you boys.

Thanks for hosting Terry!

It was a nice morning on the water with clouds and drizzle to keep us cooler than expected. I had to leave early for a family event but ended up with 6 smb caught on four different lures.

(Honey Buzz, crank, Hula, Senko).

I had one big one on the Honey Buzz but it put on a jumping show and threw the bait. Lost another one on the Hula that felt big.

Ended up being a pretty nice day all the way around.


We all met at the cafe for some eats and smallmouth talk.


It was nice to meet Joe P and his buddy.


Joe and his guest headed east to fish the north branch around the Garden Prairie area.


I hope to see and read a fine report from Joe on how they did.


Eric, Brian and myself did the main branch.


Overcast skies, a couple lite sprinkles, cool temps and very very little river traffic, Top water smallies,


all made made for a very nice and enjoyable outing.


Eric had to be out by noon, and I let him know that he he was running a tad


behind as he paddled by me at the halfway point @ 1:37pm.


Gotta love smallmouth fishing.


Eric ended his day with 6 smallmouth.


Brian landed 4 smallmouth and 2 pike. -------------------------------> DSCF6318.jpg


I hosted and had my best outing as a host with 11 smallmouth.


The bigger smallies were of the 14" variety.

The day started out slow for us. One 10 inch bass in the first two hours. Then wow I boated a nice 18 inch smallmouth. Then a 19 incher for me and another 18 for my buddy. We thought what a great day couldn't get better then wham a 17 for me. Day ended with a 14 and a 12 for me. Our best day ever on the kish.

Bill K. and I did not make the morning fish but got out in the evening, 2:30 - 7:30. Bill ended with 10 fish, 3 northern pike and 7 smallies. I got 4 smallies, most in the 14 - 15" range. Bill had good success with a buzz bait on the northerns. All the smallies came on crawdad imitations. A hot day but enjoyable.

I think not. We each had big ones on, just failed to bring to hand.

 

Joe P - Thanks for the report. The fish were pretty active on Saturday. Glad to hear you guys got a few of the big girls.

Thanks. We were very lucky. Threw almost everything we had at them. Caught all but one on a skirted jig and craw combo I just bought. Will try to post some pics when my tech support gets home. Lol
