Fly in ointment - Part III
« on: December 04, 2020, 03:18:18 PM »
All week I've had to fight an upriver wind. Today was no exception.
There's a storm coming tonight from the south and west...this AM was quite sunny with minimal wind...but by late morning things were clouding up...so by noon I was with my mistress.
Doggone that upriver wind...it started as soon as the clouds moved in...Air around 48F...Water 43F

In order to avoid dragging up river debris from the wind I went to the diminutive Willie Wannabee on a 1/8 oz stand up jig...making many upstream casts to take advantage of the wind.

Two hours later (I was really gettin' cold standing in that wind) I had landed 7 smallmouth...

Here are 3 different smallies, all weighing in between 3 and 3 lbs 12 oz. ....well worth the "fly in the ointment".

Again some nice fish! Impressive👍  Your giving me some incentive, Thanks for sharing!


I was tore between boat fishing or bank fishing.
I went out about noon to today bank fishing. The only thing I caught was a low tree limb, even took my Ned  :D
It did get pretty windy and clouded over pretty fast. I walked some new territory today. Anxious to give that a try.
The only fisherman you should try to be better than.
Is the fisherman you was yesterday.
