I headed out to a section of river to check out water conditions and see if the smallies were starting to feed up for the fall. I wanted to check out some new stretches to take clients to as well, but ended up not moving from my normal spots. I fished mid afternoon and from 1:30 to 4 I landed over a dozen smallies and lost just as many. I also had a few drum mixed in. I was working the current breaks and the larger eddies with a single #6 gamakatsu octopus and two 3/0 splits with a large fat head minnow. I would bounce it with the current and let it sweep across the holes and they were hammering it. The fish ranged from 12" to a nice day ending 19". The weather was perfect for being out on the water.
Here are some pics of a few of the bronze warriors

and the last fish of the day that really capped off a great outing.

Thanks Guys. It just really felt good to get out and just let the water flow on by me. The Fish were just an added bonus to the afternoon.

Now that's a good "mind flush" with those rushing waters. Gotta believe the fish interrupted the relaxation. Nice fish Cory.
