Well, It has been a little over 2 weeks since my last blog post. My buddy Ed and I have been floating several rivers in our area in search of the elusive trophy Smallmouth bass. We have been having a spectacular year so far, it seems every float one (or both of us) wind up with at least one fish that eclipses the 18" mark. For the record I believe any Smallmouth over 18" is to be considered a trophy and a true 20 incher is the holy grail of Smallmouth fishing. We have been doing a lot of fishing floating 3 out of the last four weekends and 5 out of the last seven. Our Outcast "Fat Cat" float tubes have really been getting a workout. I am just about to declare the float tube the most effective way to catch big Bronzebacks! The top water bite has been good and the Boogle Bug, size #4 has been the top producer (maybe because that is the only popper I have fished all year). By and far the more consistent fishing, quality and quantity, has been dragging the bottom with heavy Hellgrammite and Crayfish patterns. The 2 top producers have been the Crittermite and the Clawdad from Eastern Trophy Fly Fishing. Simple patterns that are easy to tie and catch big fish...what more could you want? This video was shot all with my GoPro Hero 4. The more I use the GoPro the more comfortable I am getting shooting and edition the video. I hope you enjoy "Floating for Smallies" Comments are always welcome. till next time...
