Is it Smallmouth Time Yet?? Getting Close......
I got the opportunity to spend a few hours on a nice little smallmouth stream with a couple of good friends this past weekend.
Of course we had to pick the coolest , overcast day to hit the water instead of one of those sunny warm days of the previous week. Unfortunately the rest of the world doesn't revolve around my fishing schedule (but it damn well should if you ask me!)so you just have to take what you can get, when you can get it.
We only landed a couple of fish , small ones at that , but had some opportunities that would have turned the tables and made it a pretty good day of fishing if things had worked out differently. Sometimes it happens like that and all you can do is pay your dues and hope for better luck next time.
We were still pretty happy with the results of the day regardless of the fish count. We got to huck some streamers, catch a couple fish and see several more visual eats that we should have caught , all while enjoying some good company floating down another one of the Ozarks finest.
Needless to say ,those fish had better not let their guards down now....we'll be back very , very soon and next time we're bringing our A-Game!
