I know I haven't been super active around here lately, but when the sun is shining it is hard to stay inside long enough to write something that makes sense. Here is a quick teaser from some recent trips. The female smallmouths seem to be starting to stage near spawning grounds, so if the weather stays constant we should see the bass spawning soon. The fishing has been slow with a few nice fish showing up, but they have been few and far between. I also have a new fishing rod and reel courtesy of Abu Garcia and the Outdoor Blogger Network. I have been putting them through their paces and will continue to do so for a few more trips and then I will be writing a review of it. Stay tuned for new updates coming soon!
