Ain't summer yet  ;) ...but some of these last few days have felt like it. The daily thunder storms have been tough.

Like the way you framed the picture of you and the smallmouth...looks real good.

My fishing days are slowing...the trib was getting low and clear and the bass were spawning...now with the numerous storms we have had the creek is muddy and high again...not good for the spawn...the Susquehanna sucks...so I might soon be through for the year. Time to get my target firearms out and hit the range.

Good luck with the smallies or anything else you may run in to.

Thanks. I figured it was soon going to be too hot for you! ;) I beat the heat by getting out early. Soon I will be hitting my evening shady areas!

Nice fish Phil!
Fishing launches have been crazy up here, triple the boats with lots of recreation Kayakers.  :-\
The other week I got forced back to bank fishing due to the wind. Had a good day 20,18 and 15.5"
Still liking that 1/8 oz motor oil grub.

Dry miss your posts...see you in the fall.
