If it pulled the canoe around pretty good, then I'll guess 5-5. If not, then I'm going with 4-7! Nice fish :)

Always hard to tell from the picture, but it's a hell of a fish either way

Been a little quite here, anyone been getting out? Went to Pool 2 last Saturday and we ended up with something like 2 Smallmouth, 3 Walleye, 2 Whitebass, a Sauger and a Drum. Most of the fish came on Crankbaits.

I was out this past Fri and Sat. It was slow for me. Got 3 on Friday and 2 on Sat. Biggest was a little over 18in. I blame it on the 27 degree morning low Sat and my poor skills! Wish I could of gotten out today.

Phil and I went to the Rum Saturday,  and as RD said, it was COLD! Got a few, but no giants. My quest for my first 4lb+ smallie continues.

This time of year I don't like getting on the water before 10AM. Lets the water warm up at least a little bit.

Was that stupid car show going on? I went there last year and it was a cluster  ~xyz  if you want a 4# smallie you're going to the wrong place. Tim and I took last Wednesday off, it was slow fishing but he got his 4# smallie (picture doesn't do it justice, I think it was 4.15 on my scale). That makes his personal best Smallie and Walleye out of my boat in the last week, I think I'm going to start charging him a guide fee  ~roflmao

Well, who is getting out this weekend as we near the end here? Weather actually looks good.

I think I got Saturday in the clear for most of the day! Could be my last weekend out :(, since I will be Deer chasing the next two weekends after that. Maybe with El Nino though, we might be Bass fishing later this year!

Had a great day on rum Sunday,  top 5 went 20",19h,19h,18h,18!, about 21lbs of smallies, not bad for in the metro. My top 4 were the biggest I ever caught.

Sounds like a good outing!
I didn't have such good luck. Went out Sat. after the drizzle ended and couldn't get a bite for the first hour or more. Almost went home. Then finally found a few all in one area. Ended up with 6 bass, nothing big, 3.5lb was the biggest. Also were alot of pike with them and wound up with about 10 of those. Guess they provided some extra action.
Sunday I went with a buddy figuring with the warmer temps it might get better. We got only 4 pike and I managed only one 3lb bass at the end to avoid a total shut out. Oh well, the other option was to stay home and deal with a visiting mother in law! Not really a tough choice there.

Good luck to anyone fishing the next couple weeks, I'll be in the Deer Stand.  Weather looks a little warm for hunting, but good for fishing.
