Get 'em while they're hot
« on: December 03, 2021, 05:47:14 PM »
My uncle Bill had a year round cabin along the Big Conewago Creek in northern York County in the 60's when it was a great smallmouth fishery. He would often call me and tell me to get up to his place and "Get 'em while they're biting."
I wasn't gonna go out today but the clouds moved in after lunch and the wind died down to nothing. The air temp was in the low 50's so I headed down to see my mistress and get 'em while they were biting. My wife didn't care...she was showering and doing her hair and that takes all afternoon  ;D   I padded the oysters for supper and headed for the river.

Fished from 2 PM until 3:30 PM. Picked up 8 smallmouth.

A few foot-longs...


A few  2 to 2 and 1/2 pounders...


A nice 3.5 pounder...


And a beautiful 3 3/4 pounder...


FYI - I tried the smoke tube today but it was a no-go
FYI - I lost 2 jigs today
FYI - All the bass were caught on Willie Wannabee.
