I was back on the water with my dad today. He hadn't been on the water for a while so I asked him what he wanted to fish and his answer was no surprise.... He wanted to catch big smallies! I headed for a new area I've been exploring lately and we spoted some good ones right away. We were fortunate to have blue skies and low winds to be able see them cruising on sand flats. Catching those shallow smallies was no easy task... We had to creep up on them very quietly and stay as far as possible.
We caught most of our fish on senkos and tubes both shallow and deep today. We didn't catch a ton of fish but quality was definitely there with most of the fish in the 3.5 to 4.5lbs range.
