More "flies in the ointment"
« on: December 02, 2020, 02:14:20 PM »
Snow flurries last night had my windshield covered with snow...air temp was 36F (needed gloves today)...but the wind had calmed and was from the west...so off I went around 10 AM...
Water temps had dropped 2-3 degrees overnight so I started with the Willie Wannabe (a smaller Chillee Willee with silicone hair)...

Picked up three smallies in the 1-2 pound range with that lure...



Then I went back to the Undulator with silicone added...picked up another 5 smallmouth before the wind changed around noon and began blowing from the SSW again and made a proper presentation more difficult...

This one tipped my scale at 3 lbs...



And this one at 3 lbs. 5 oz.



MORE CALM DAYS ARE NEEDED!!... do you hear that mother nature  ;)  ;D

Dry that is simply amazing 😍
They are really nice fish. You sure have a nice system figured out.
Really appreciate you posting what you were using and what's working for you.
I know that doesn't ensure that's going to work for somebody else, but thanks for sharing 👍

I kicked around going fishing today but a steady 14 mph wind with 39 mph gust talked me out of it.
I really don't like standing under them old river trees in them kind of winds.

The NWS was originally calling for a 5.4' crest on the river and we ended up with a 3' crest.
Their predictions haven't been to good. We usually end up with about half what they are predicting.
The only fisherman you should try to be better than.
Is the fisherman you was yesterday.

The 9 foot gauge reading at Sunbury is just about right for wading at Selinsgrove right now. I have actually been "wading" a lot more with my hip boots on rather than just walking the shoreline like most winters when the water is much higher. I even got a little water over the top of my hip boots today.
Just hope it doesn't get too cold too quick and we get floating ice on the water.
