2 fish caught | Lunker: 2lb Smallmouth Bass using a Storm Swim Bait

It's early and the fish are just starting pre-spawn on the northern part of the mississpippi. We were fishing structure at the mouth of a bay. We did not have really have any bites the first hundred yards. Then I tossed a storm swim jig under a tree with roots in the water. I bounced it about twice and it hit on the way back down. It weighed roughly 2 and a half pounds. WHich is a pretty good start to the year.

1 fish caught | Lunker: 3lb Smallmouth Bass using a River2Sea Topwater Bait

Smallmouth were on the rocks tight to shore. Caught several on topwater baits. The River2Sea Rover was great for both LM and SM. Caught some LM on the frog in clearer water with the eel grass. lots of keeper size LM on the wood too. Fish were starting to pile up in some spots-fall patterns kicking in.
